There are two bodies that control the work of the German YMCA resp. the German National Association of YMCAs:

  1. the Steering Committee
  2. the General Assembly

Once a year, there is a so-called "policy weekend", during which the individual and varied programs are being cross-linked to promote networking among the members.

Additionally, there is an annual conference of the Steering Committee of the National Association, together with the Steering Committees of the 13 member movements.

Individual committees and task groups that deal with particular programs, work all year round.

  • Secretary General
  • Management / Administration
  • Children and Youth Work

  • Sports
  • Music
  • International Work
  • Voluntary Services
