Celebrating the important role of dads and father figures
Every year children in the community are invited to nominate their dad or father figure by writing or drawing about why they are so special to them. Winners are selected at each participating YMCA centre or service.
YMCA Community Father of the Year recognises dads and father figures who may think they’re ordinary, but are in fact extraordinary. To the children in their life, they’re a superhero. Read more about how it all began.
The nominations for the YMCA Community Father of the Year are also considered for the Father’s Day Council of Victoria’s prestigious Victorian Father of the Year Award. A number of Community Fathers have been past winners.
Community Father of the Year winners receive free entry for them and their family to the YMCA Father’s Day Fun Run.
