When you hire a young person through YMCA Bridge Project, you make a difference. You make a difference to your business. You make a difference to the community. But most importantly, you make a difference to someone’s life.
Since 2006, over 100 of our partnered businesses have helped make a difference to over 500 young people’s lives. Many of the young people who come through YMCA Bridge Project have had difficult circumstances that have led them into a cycle of crime, and all of them are desperate to break that cycle.
Currently, the rate of re-offending in Victoria is over 50%. For those that come through YMCA Bridge Project, this drops to less than 5%.
