The Y has established www.whynot.org.au as a platform for young people. Initially, the site will encourage and enable young people to contact those in power about the issue they would like addressed. From here, the Y hopes to evolve the site to become a beacon for young people wanting to be heard by society filled with resources, opportunities to identify issues and work towards solutions.
The Y in Australia serves in over 700 communities, offering a wide range of activities from gyms and swimming centres to early learning, school holiday programs, camping, sports, disability, youth services and leadership programs, all united by a shared belief in the power of inspired young people. www.ymca.org.au
