The Community Strengthening Sub-Committee oversees the BRYMCA's benevolent activities which are conducted under the overarching national belief statement of the YMCA movement: 'We believe in the bower of inspired young people'.
Our primary objective is to build capability in young people and provide financial support to meet the immediate and long term needs of individuals, groups and activities within the chartered territory of the Bendigo Regional YMCA.
