The YMCA is a community based charity that delivers programs and services to help build strong people, strong families and strong communities from over 500 YMCA centres across Australia.
We work in partnership with government, non-profit groups and partners to provide programs and services to more than 500,000 Australians every week in health and fitness, recreation, accommodation, child care, camping, youth and family services
The YMCAs of Australia work together from a base of Christian values to provide opportunities for all people to grow in body, mind and spirit.
The YMCAs of Australia are guided to achieve their Mission by the following Christian values. We value:
The dignity and intrinsic worth of all people regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, belief or other difference.
Diversity of people, communities and nations.
Equality of opportunity and justice for all people.
Healthy communities based on relationships between people which are characterised by love, understanding and mutual respect.
Acceptance of personal responsibility.
These core values translate into four key operational values:
Honesty – Respect – Caring – Responsibility
