If you want to support and join the YUMI community, there are lots of ways you can do this:

Become a member

Membership with YUMI is free. As a member you'll be entitled to vote on matters at our Annual General Meeting and receive news updates in between newsletters - so, you'll be informed about whats going on all the time.

Join the YUMI social media

Sign-up and start meeting new people, it's like a 'YUMI facebook' kind of thing...

Become a Volunteer

Do you want to add another dimension to your life? Meet new people from around the world to share experiences & make new friends? Do you want to practice your English or help others with theirs? Do you want to improve or learn new skills?

As a volunteer, you will be central to YUMI: our volunteers run the network and develop our projects; they are on our Management Committee and our Projects Forum. We're always happy to have more, and will provide you with training if we can. We need volunteers for a wide range of roles, from publicising our activities and events to taking on responsibility for research, managing our website and helping us in all sorts of ways.

Visit the volunteering opportunities page to see if there's something you'd like to do.....and if you'd like to do something that isn't there - let us know and we'll do our best to make it possible.


There are loads of ways to help raise funds for YUMI and help it continue its great work and it might surprise you how much fun this can be! Have a look at the fundraising page and be inspired!

Tell us your ideas

Have you got an idea for a new activity?  If you have a particular interest that others may share or learn - do tell us! We will help you develop your idea and create new ways for people to get involved and enjoy life.
