The Y believes in the power of inspired young people. With over 14,000 staff and 2,000 volunteers dedicated to inspiring them through a range of services, incredible things happen every day at Ys around the country.
So, we created A Million Moments to shine a light on those stories.
This site aims to tell the stories of the everyday heroes of the Y, both of inspired young people and those who help to inspire them.
From the carer who looks after young people with disabilities, to the young staff who provide peace of mind to hundreds of parents every day, to the young person who was homeless but is now a valued Y employee, we create thousands of moments like this every day. In fact, we create millions.
Can you think of someone involved with the Y in Australia who deserves to be a part of A Million Moments? Everyday heroes would never think to nominate themselves, so it’s up to you to put them forward. If you know someone who’s having a powerful impact in the Y (whether staff member, volunteer, or program participant), let us know by entering your details and a brief description of their story – to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll get in touch with you.
