Rev. Johan Vilhelm Eltvik
Since 1st of January 2011 I am the Secretary General of the World Alliance of YMCAs, the largest and oldest youth movement in the world. I was born, as most people are, and for me this took place in Norway in 1953. Being born is an underestimated challenge, tough, but later I have really learnt to “Love 2 Live”. I am married to Ingunn and we have two daughters, one son-in-law and three grandchildren. They keep me young and happy.
This summer of 2011 it is 25 years since I started to work as a professional for the YMCA. I have worked in Germany, in Norway and since 1991 I worked for for YMCA Europe, the last 11 years as General Secretary (CEO).
I am passionate about communication and I love to write.
