YMCA International Services
About the organization
The YMCA was created by young people trying to navigate their way in a new city, far from family, friends, and a familiar way of life. Welcoming and engaging newcomers has remained an important part of the YMCA movement, with Y’s around the world providing individuals and families the integration support they need to better transition into their new communities.
YMCA International Services is a unique center of the YMCA of Greater Houston that delivers client-centered programs to refugees, immigrants and other vulnerable populations to advance their economic independence, social integration and civic participation. The Y helps newcomers restore hope, build stability, create opportunity and change futures. YMCA International Services is continuously recognized as a leader in the Houston immigrant community.
The Resource Development VISTA will create documents, and implement plans for the YMCA to improve their impact on the low-literacy low-poverty adult community. VISTA will put proposals for the YMCA, editing and assisting reports, and being involved in Data Management. The VISTA will mobilize local resources to increase the capacity of adult literacy programs to build lasting solutions to poverty.
