YMCA Bridge Project Breakfast

The Breakfast

Friday July 27
7 am – 9 am

July 27 will see change-makers unite and continue to lead the way in supporting young people in the justice system.

With your support, young people can access education and employment, positively changing their lives and reducing their likelihood of recidivism.

Whether you hire a young person, buy a raffle ticket, or make a donation, your contribution directly supports young people to break away from the cycle of crime.

Join us, fill a table, bring your friends, or your colleagues, and witness on 27 July how leaders are changing lives in our community.



By hiring a young person through YMCA Bridge Project you have the power to change a life.
Join a program that is supported by influential Victorian businesses and organisations.


By hiring ReBuild or making a donation you are making an investment in your community.

For young people who take part in the YMCA Bridge Project, the reoffending rate drops from 50% to just 3%. This reduction has the potential to save the Victorian Government $2.5 million per year



Whether you hire a young person or donate, your support to YMCA Bridge Project is inspiring young people and other community members to recognise their own potential.
