​​The ​​​​​​​YMCA of the Northern Territory Ltd

An opportunity to be part of an exciting new leadership group​

After decades of operating as individual YMCAs, the Territory YMCAs are amalgamating into one – YMCA of the NT Ltd. With a strong philosophy built over 160 years, you have the opportunity to be part of building a new vision for the YMCA  in the Territory.

​​Our Mission
To work from a base of Christian values, to provide opportunities for all people to grow in body, mind and spirit.

Our Values
We look to our values – caring, honesty, respect and responsibility to guide all that we do.

Our Vision
With the Y, everyone can... be healthier, happier and connected to their community; and help those who are not.

​YMCA's work is directed at providing opportunities for children, young people and communities, particularly through empowering young people. 

We believe strongly in the power of inspired young people. Learn more about this belief - click here

All together better.  Together we will have greater delivery capacity, cost efficiencies and enhanced ability to address Territory wide social issues as well as local needs. We will build on current programs and look to develop new ones.

Our core focus across the Territory will be:

    • Working with young people, particularly indigenous young people.

    • Providing opportunity for all people to live a more active lifestyle, especially for communities and people at risk of disease such as diabetes, obesity, mental health issues.

    • Supporting the disadvantaged through a range of programs targeted to meet local needs.


Our new governance structure will ensure local community issues are heard at a Territory level.  Each region will have a Community Advisory Committee which will become a voice for communities and influence where and how YMCA invests its resources.

Each Committee will also have representation on the newly formed YMCA NT Board.

We are seeking nominations now for Board Members and Community Advisory Committee Members.  Recruitment Kits for both positions are available.
