YMCA Manningham is proud to work closely with and alongside the YMCA as a national movement in Australia, including YVIC, YMCA Canberra and others. In 2018, YMCA Manningham will be funding a number of places for young people aged 12 - 25 years who live, work and/or study in Manningham, to attend camps delivered by YMCA nationally. YMCA Manningham Youth Services works closely with community partners Doncare and headspace Hawthorn, along with local schools and other community organisations in identifying young people from our local community who would benefit most from these exciting opportunities.

FUTURE LEADERS CAMP
YMCA Future Leaders is targeted at young staff or volunteers within your YMCA, who have made a positive contribution to your branch and are looking to develop a career within the YMCA. The program will deliver personal development opportunities, as well as providing broader understanding of the YMCA, developing skills directly applicable to their work environments and inspiring them to become influential within their branch. Each of our branches has deserving young staff and volunteers who would benefit from this program. We’re sure your nominees will appreciate the opportunity presented, and gain significantly from your support of them.
The YMCA Space Camp Powered by WorldStrides is an action-packed experience you won’t want to miss!

We’ll look through giant telescopes, map the earth in real time, fly drones, build Mars Rovers and explore some of the big equations scientists have to solve before we can get to Mars.
