VYMA News

VYMA Closure

Despite a tremendous effort to sustain the organisation, from June 27, the VYMA will cease operations for the foreseeable future. This is due to unexpected changes to our funding arrangements, which means the VYMA does not have resources to continue in its current form.

However we will not be giving up on the good fight!

VYMA has built a strong relationship with the Youth Affairs Council of Victoria over the past two years. YACVic has provided a great deal of support for mentoring and will continue to support the Victorian youth mentoring sector, by:

  • advocating for sustainable funding of mentoring during the lead up to the Victorian state elections
  • working on a new project, created by VYMA, to keep VYMA resources accessible to the sector

YACVic would appreciate your guidance during this transition, and there will be opportunities to become involved in its work. If you are able to offer your support to YACVic, please email Leo on lfieldgrass@yacvic.org.au

VYMA has achieved a great deal and have added great strength to the sector. Forming in 2006 from a passionate group of mentoring professionals, the organisation has gone from strength to strength: building up a strong and loyal membership, delivering an array of quality projects and establishing Victoria as a leader in the mentoring space.

Thank you to the former staff, board members, partners and members of the VYMA. The work from this alliance will be used in the community sector for years to come.
