YMI Legacy Story Series

The Legacy Story Series was created to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Y’s Men. Each short story will highlight key individuals, events, and projects from the local to global level within the first century of the movement and appear on Y’s Men International’s Facebook, Instagram, and their official website every day. The final (100th) story was published on March 11 to coincide with the YMI 100th Anniversary Event in Taipei, Taiwan.  To download the stories, please visit: https://www.ysmen.org/category/legacy-stories-series/.

100th Anniversary Celebration in Taiwan

The Y’s Men International Centennial Celebration was held from March 10-12 at the Grand Hyatt in Taipei, Taiwan. Members from around the world joined in the celebration. They celebrated YMI’s legacy, mission, and impact in the first century. The theme of the event is “Great because of you!” The event also highlighted working together into the next century to build an equitable and sustainable world for all. This long awaited event was to be held in 2022 but was postponed due to COVID shutdowns instituted in China. The next Y’s Men International convention will be held in the Philippines in 2024.
