Youth Unify North America
A gathering of young people praying for the YMCA and living out the Christian mission.
We want to ignite the fire in young people to lift up Christ in their YMCA.
We want you to be equipped and on fire for the movement of God in our YMCAs. The prayer and action of young people have changed the world before and it can happen again. The goal is over the course of 4 days you will:
- Understand the history of the YMCA
- Build community with believers
- Be empowered to lead in your YMCA
- Reset your passion and purpose
This year's theme is Foundations. We are going to dive into the foundations of the YMCA, how they influenced the movement, and how they can impact us today.
We want to be grounded in the right foundations as we seek to live out the Christian mission.

About Youth Unify North America
We are one gathering of many across the world that exists to equip and empower people to live out the Christian mission in their own YMCA contexts.
Our story started in 2022 when a group of young people involved in YMCA in America traveled to the Czech Republic for Youth Unify Europe. After experiencing how God was moving in young people there, we asked the question - how could we bring that momentum here to North America?
Three months later, we were driving from Upstate New York to Cincinnati, on the way home from the national YMCA Christian Mission Conference at Silver Bay, and God put it on our hearts to create a place like Youth Unify Europe and like the Silver Bay Christian Mission Conference for young people in the YMCA in America. Youth Unify North America was born.
This gathering has been two years in the making, and we are excited to be together in August. See you soon!
