Mission, vision and values

Our mission and values

Diagram of the mission, vision, strategy and four supporting pillars

We have set ourselves a bold national Vision: to create a better world with, and for, young people.

To deliver on our vision sits our even bolder Strategy Statement. 

We are committed to driving systemic change across:

  • community wellbeing
  • meaningful work
  • a sustainable planet
  • a just world

We recognise that the Y is uniquely positioned to drive this change by challenging the policies, practices, norms and mindsets which hold us back.
We work with 650 communities across Australia and 12,000 globally. We have an extensive service profile and a deep knowledge of providing life-long support to children and young people.

Our cycle of impact and inspiration

Our belief in the power of inspired young people means we embrace a cycle of impact and inspiration.

  • We enrich the lives of children and inspire them to reach their potential.
  • Our primary focus is young people between 12 and 22 years old.
  • We aim to empower adults to inspire young people and be inspired by them.
