We have set ourselves a bold new vision: to create a better world, with and for young people. Our mission is to empower children, young people and communities Australia-wide to build a just, sustainable, equitable and inclusive world, where every person can thrive in body, mind and spirit.

We recognise that driving systemic change – creating lasting change by challenging the very policies, practices, norms and mindsets which hold us back – is something that the Y is uniquely positioned to do. We work with 650 communities across Australia; 12,000 globally. We have an extensive service profile, and deep knowledge on how to support children and young people, from the earliest of ages throughout their life journey. This is the challenge we have boldly and intentionally set ourselves, through Strategy 2030.
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.
