The goal of Cevi (YMCA/YWCA) Zurich is to encourage children, teenagers and adults to meet one another and get closer to the Christian faith. Cevi (YMCA/YWCA) Zurich supports and expands the Cevi (YMCA/YWCA) variety in the city and surrounding area by offering programs and activities which adopt the needs of the society with a special focus on young people.
Through open offers, young people are given a way to effectively spend their free time and keep away from negative influences. Teenagers are encouraged to work cooperatively together and to take responsibility for themselves and their community.
Cevi (YMCA/YWCA) Zurich attracts individuals with its YMCA/YWCA specific holistic approach (Body, Mind and Spirit). This is why the Cevi (YMCE/YWCA) logo consits of a triangle.
The bend around the triangle symbolises the “C” for Christianity. We are sharing the good news of Jesus Christ through respect and love towards all people. As an ecumenical christian movement we work together with local Churches whilst respecting confessional differences.
