Biographical history

The Y's Men's Clubs were established in Toledo, Ohio in 1920 and consisted of men active in the Young Men's Christian Associatin (YMCA) who were eager to further assist the organization. The International Association formed in 1922 and the movement spread to Canada in 1923. A chapter was established in Calgary, Alberta that year and a second, the South Calgary Y's Men's Club in the 1960s. The organization acts as a service club, to serve its community as an outreach arm of the YMCA. Each club has projects that suit the needs of the community. A new constitution was adopted in 1973 allowing women to be members.
