Happy Birthday YMCA!

Every year on June 6 we celebrate the official birthday of the worldwide YMCA. As an organisation, we are over 170 years young!

June 6 is the day of the official founding of the YMCA, in England, by George Williams. So we declared June 6 – June 12 Y-Week!

Y Week is a birthday celebration focused on celebrating all the good things of being part of the worldwide YMCA.

This year we will celebrate together. We will share a common story about the work we do, in connecting healthy happy communities across Australia.

Staff, volunteers, members, participants, alumni, however you’re involved with the Y, let's all get ready to party and eat cake!
