Some 3250 young volunteers and leaders from around the world attended and this was the first stop for the 175 Heritage Roadshow. During the year a small team including significant input from YMCA Springfield College, The Kautz Family YMCA Archive, the archive of the YMCA World Alliance and the Cadbury Research Library in Birmingham England, the Home of the National YMCA of England & Wales Archive made significant contribution to the Exhibition content. They were joined by a group of young people who made significant contributions to the content and design of the Exhibition.
