The YMCA was established in 1844 in London, by George Williams and his colleagues, as a viable answer to the needs of young people confronted with the new social-economic situation of the 19th century.

The YMCA in the Czech Republic was re-established in November 1992 before the splitting of Czechoslovakia into two independent states. The YMCA however has had a long history in the country which dates back to 1919, when the Army YMCA operated in Czechoslovakia. In 1921 the YMCA in Czechoslovakia was accepted as a full member of the World Alliance of YMCAs. Supported by the YMCA of the USA the Czechoslovak YMCA played an important role in Czechoslovak sports, politics, religion and its social and cultural life until 1951. When the communist party took control of the country the YMCA was closed as an undesirable organisation.


Currently the YMCA in the Czech Republic works through 25 local associations in towns and villages in the Czech Republic. The associations organise activities according to the needs of the local community where they operate. The YMCA in the Czech Republic is member of the World Alliance of YMCAs and the European Alliance of YMCAs (YMCA Europe).
