The 2019-2020 financial year has once again seen the organisation involve itself in a number of key community events, programs and activities to build community capacity as well as working collaboratively with other stakeholders to promote and raise awareness of support services and programs outside the scope of the organisation. The organisation continues to source and secure additional funding and utilises its Charitable and DGR status as a means to demonstrate its operations in community to funding bodies. YPA hopes to initiate a number of social business enterprise projects that young people can be supported with attaining meaningful skills, training and pathways to employment opportunities.
