Our Cycle of Impact and Inspiration

Believing in the power of inspired young people means we must embrace a cycle of impact and inspiration supporting children to grow into inspired young people and helping adults inspire and support them. Though our activities may be varied, we are united by our positive impact on young people.

  • Children – We enrich the lives of children and inspire them to reach their potential.
  • Young People – are our primary focus.
  • Adults – Through our work with adults, we aim to empower them to inspire young people and/or be inspired by them.


The Y acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures; and to Elders past, present and future.
