Social Impact

Our Mission

Officially known as Y-Care South East Queensland Inc., YMCA Social Impact is the charitable arm of the YMCA of Brisbane. We come from a base of Christian values to facilitate programs that encourage personal growth in body, mind and spirit. Our mission is to give people a Real Opportunity to be the best that they can be.

We work to identify individual and community needs and to respond with understanding, care and mutual respect. Our programs are transformational both for those receiving and delivering the service, and we aim to create places where people feel they belong.

Our Values

Honesty - we are open and transparent in everything we do.
Respect - we value, support, and respect the diversity of people, communities, and nations.
Caring - we believe in providing real opportunity and justice for all people. We support without judgment.
Responsibility - we are accountable for our actions and we look to inspire people to live with intent and purpose.

Our Vision

Our vision is to be an unbreakable organisation where impact is maximised across all program areas.

The Y acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands we work upon and we pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging.
