The YMCA always has and always will be here for young people. Our work is driven by our belief in inspired young people, this is our purpose.
We deliver a vast range of services and programs to enable young people to be heard, to build cohesive, active and healthy communities, and all to drive positive change in the world. This is why our vision to help us deliver on this is:
Amplify your voice. Shape our community. Challenge our world.
As the largest and oldest youth organisation in the world, young people are at the centre of everything we do at the Y. We want to empower young people to voice their opinions and concerns on issues important to them.
Everyone in the community, including young people, have the right to feel included and connected with one another. That’s why we are committed to building strong communities every day in our gyms, pools, early learning centres and camps.
We want to help young people and communities shape the design of their environment and shake up the status quo with fresh thinking, health and confidence.
