Staff and volunteers

In the year 2019-2020, we employed 5,582 staff, with 44.5% under the age of 25. Our 819 volunteers gave up 19,678 hours this year, and while this is invaluable to us, that amounts to an incredible $820,966 worth of time our dedicated volunteers provided.

YMCA Open Doors

The Y offers a great range of programs and services for people of all ages, abilities, cultural backgrounds and lifestyles. However, unfortunately not all people can afford to participate. It’s part of our mission to provide equal access to health and wellness services to all members of the community. We’re proud that each year thousands of Victorians are provided with subsidised access to our services thanks to our YMCA Open Doors program.
