​​​​​​​​WHY NOT?

The question young people are asking…

The YMCA believes in the power of inspired young people. The problem is, the voices of young people are rarely heard. We want to change that.​​

About ‘Why Not’

The YMCA 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 YMCA 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.​

We're asking Australia…Why Not?

​The Why Not campaign was created by the YMCA to help young voices be heard by those in power on the issues that matter to them. These are our first three issues.​

​​Marriage Equality

It's 2017 and some Australians still can't marry the person they love…Why Not?​

Youth Unemployment

When there are no jobs for a career you've spent years studying for…Why Not?

Youth Mental Hea​​lth

No one is screaming that one in four young Australians has a mental health condition…Why Not?​​
