About YMCA Youth Services

At YMCA Youth Services, we help young people to be heard and reach their potential in life.

Who we work with

We work with all young people, leveraging relationships with businesses, local and state government, and other community organisations. Whether you're a business with employment opportunities for young people, a procurement agency looking to fulfil a government contract, or a local council looking for engagement opportunities within the community, we can help you.

Our impact

At the Y, we change lives for the better. We've been working with young people in Victoria for over a century and we've made meaningful and positive impact on their lives and across our local communities. Find out more about our impact.

About YMCA Victoria 

At YMCA Victoria, we passionately believe in the power of inspired young people. We're a community not-for-profit organisation, meaning all we receive is put back into improving our programs and services, and to supporting local communities.

YMCA Victoria has been working with young people ever since we became a part of the Y community in 1853.

We believe in the power of inspired young people. Learn more about the other programs, products and services offered by YMCA Victoria.
