YMCA Latin America and the Caribbean will award a limited number of subsidies.

Subsidies will be awarded under the following criteria:

  • The Movements should participate actively in developing and implementing the regional strategic plan.

    • Only one delegate per country will receive a subsidy. If there are additional subsidies, the Movements may receive a higher amount or an additional subsidy up to a corresponding maximum for two delegates

    • Priority will be given to the participation of the following delegates:

    • Young people under 30 years of age who have preferably participated in regional or international programs such as YGOR, YMCA

    • Líderes, Agentes de Cambio, among others.

The final decision will be communicated to the National Movements that have requested a subsidy, on April 17. The final list of National Movements funded and the amount awarded will be presented to the Executive Committee and will be available for consultation by National Movements upon written request.
