Welcome to Jaffna YMCA

Community-focused nonprofit established in 1844 with recreational programs & services for all ages.

Who We Are?

The Jaffna YMCA is located in at a strategic location in the Jaffna Peninsula, in the North of the Country, established in 1890.

The 128 year old Jaffna YMCA works for the development of youth, children and care of elders. Though the YMCA was adversely affected many times during the ethnic crisis, it continues to carry out its good services to the public.  Presently, the refurbished Hostel and the Main Hall are an asset and enables us to render a better service.
