Scope and Contents
Minutes and reports of the World Student Christian Federation followed by documents concerning the relationship between the National Student YWCA and the National Student YMCA. The World Student Christian Federation is an international organization uniting student Christian movements across racial and national lines through facilitating conferences, cooperation and the exchange of ideas. The relationship between the National Student YWCA and National Student YMCA is explored through consultation reports, minutes of meetings of the National Student Councils of the YMCA and YWCA Administrative Committee and National Student YWCA statements and resolutions. A brief historical outline of the relationship between the two groups outlines the nature of the relationship over time.
