Who we are

YMCA Exeter is a local Christian organisation and we were founded in 1846, making 2016 our 170th Birthday…!

We are inspired by the example of Jesus Christ and motivated by our shared experience of God’s love and his transforming work within our own lives. We believe that every person is hugely valuable and ensure that our services are welcoming to people of all faiths or none.

We are passionate about seeing communities transformed into places which are characterised by love, joy, peace and hope so that all young people can be equipped with the tools they need to achieve economic independence, grow in their unique skills and gifts and ultimately contribute positively to society.
