The Ukrainian Youth Association (CYM) Melbourne is a voluntary non-profit Ukrainian organisation that promotes Ukrainian language, traditions and cultural activities, with the aim of members feeling a sense of connectedness to their Ukrainian heritage. Our members have opportunities to participate in weekly educational meetings for youth, excursions and trips, dancing and singing groups and summer camps. These activities all emphasize the development of Christian ethics, good character and leadership skills.
In addition to striving to instill a sense of Ukrainian identity, emphasis is placed on the importance of becoming an honest and contributing member of the Australian Community.
Membership is organised into a variety of age categories, with adults working towards furthering the objectives of the Association. Membership applications are accepted at any age.
