A vital part of our ongoing youthwork programme is organising international youth exchanges for young people.  These exchanges enable the YMCA to promote issues of citizenship and develop different types of work to facilitate the needs of young people in Body, Mind and Spirit. 


Aberdeen YMCA first engaged in international youth exchanges in 1993 when an exchange was initiated between the Scottish and German YMCAs following an earlier visit, in 1989.  Exchanges, sponsored by the British Council, have continued since.  Click here to find out more about this partnership:  www.aberdeenymca.org.uk/berlin.htm




In 1994 we established links with the YMCA in Regensburg, Germany.  Regensburg is a twin city of the city council in Aberdeen.  Sponsored by Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeen YMCA and CVJM Regensburg have been able to participate in annual exchanges since.  Click here for further info on this partnership: www.aberdeenymca.org.uk/regensburg.htm
