Lviv and Aarhus YMCA partnership started in 2012 with a key purpose to cooperate at local level in youth projects and programs. To date, both teams work on implementation of youth exchange programs, leadership training, involvement of new members, new resources search, Erasmus+ cooperation, culture and art events, and educational/teaching experience.
Since July 2016, YMCA-Lviv and YMCA-Aarhus launched an ARC (artists research center) project to build a common creative space for youth informal educational programs. Two representatives of YMCA-Aarhus are acting members of the YMCA Lviv Steering Committee. In January 2017, a team of YMCA-Aarhus took part in official opening of YMCA office in Lviv.
