YM Awards

After hours of deliberation by the Judging Panel, and more than 7,000 votes, the finalists for this year’s prestigious YMCA Youth Matters Awards have just been announced. We are delighted that four of YMCA DownsLink Group’s projects have been nominated in three categories!

The YMCA Youth Matters Awards is an annual awards event celebrating the achievements of young people, staff and volunteers.
