Who we are

YPat is one of 5 social enterprises from Perth and District YMCA, a local charity committed to providing opportunities to young people. Our social enterprises provide real work experience and training to young people and help generate a sustainable income for the charity. Since 1995, Perth YMCA has been working towards empowering young people by providing unique opportunities for them to build positive futures. 

YPat is one such opportunity. When we realised what it would take to for us to train young people to be fully qualified technicians, we launched the enterprise immediately. It was a practical way to give aspiring young people employment and help them to provide an essential service to the community. We are early in our journey as an enterprise and every customer we add to our service gives us the opportunity to help more young people in the community. 

By choosing YPat, you are not just choosing safety. You are choosing to be a part of shaping the future of the young people we work with. You are helping them to be a part of shaping the futures of their communities. You are fulfilling your own social responsibility and getting a valuable service in return.
