Who We Are
The Y is a community based
charity that delivers programs and services to help build strong people, strong
families and strong communities across a variety of services. We work in
partnership with government, non-profit groups and partners to provide programs
and services in many communities across Victoria in health and
fitness, outdoor pools management, recreation, early years services, child care, youth and
Wherever the Y is, we strive to make a positive difference by providing each and every person opportunity to be healthy, happy and connected.
We have over 12,000 staff across the country and around 4,000 volunteers, who are the backbone of the YMCA.
Each year we record 30 million participations in our programs and services across the country! The majority of these are in the healthy living space – with 20 million participations in our health clubs and
4.3 million swimming lessons a year!
Just over 1 million participations are recorded in our youth specific programs and another 1 million in our camping programs.
And we have almost 3 million participations in our children's services including kindergartens, early learning centres, outside school hours care and vacation care.
