Description
The 55th Y's Men International Convention is held at the Sejong Cultural Center, Seoul, July 20-23, 1982, attended by more than 4000 of its members from all over the world. This is its second international convention held in an Asian country.

Today's International Y's Men Club has grown out of "TOLYMCA", a young men's club created in 1920 by P. W. Alexander(1888-1967) of the United States with 17 enthusiastic members of the Toledo, Ohio YMCA. With the motto, Fellowship, Service and Culture, the Y's Men Club is an organization which admits anyone as a member regardless of occupation and religion, and whose members, together with their spouses, devote themselves to rendering hidden service to their community without exposing themselves. It has a large membership of more than 30,000 representing 54 countries around the world.

The Korean Y's Men Club was first organized in Seoul in 1947. It had just started its activities when the Korean War broke out. Resuming them in 1958, it has since grown to 154 clubs with their members working vigorously throughout the country.

The Ministry of Communications issues this commemorative postage stamp in celebration of the 55th Y's Men International Convention, and also in the hope that this will serve as an occasion to strengthen fellowship among members of the entire family of man on earth.
