For years we’ve been referring to ourselves as ‘the Y’. Not just because it’s shorter to say but because it’s more inclusive. And inclusivity, equality and diversity are what we’re all about.
As the oldest and largest youth organisation in the world, times have changed since the Young Men’s Christian Association was founded. We stand behind all people regardless of gender, race, religion, or sexuality. Everyone should feel welcome and supported at the Y.
When it comes to our cause, we’re committed to helping build strong kids, strong families and strong communities throughout Hawke’s Bay.
