Historical information
In the early stage of the Australian Young Christian Workers Movement the male and female members were separated into NCGM and YCW Boys. This was a reflection of society at the time as both groups campaigned on different youth realities to reflect their members, for example during the YCW's apprenticeship campaign YCW Boys looked at the topic of labourers and airport personal, while NCGM campaigned for changes to hairdressing apprenticeships.
