About Us

Officially known as Y-Care SE Qld Inc., YMCA Social Impact is the group of programs that make up the charitable arm of the YMCA Brisbane. Our mission is to give people a Real Opportunity to grow in body, mind and spirit, so that the cycle of disadvantage is broken and they are able to realise their individual potential.
