At the Y, we all want the same thing: a better world with and for young people. However, we also understand that each person’s background and experiences are entirely unique. Diversity isn’t just something we embrace; it’s something we wholeheartedly celebrate!
Leading by example is the heart of what we do. When young people see us working in a diverse and inclusive environment, they learn to be kinder and more understanding. Our goal is to create a workplace where everyone thrives, regardless of their background or identity.
For Alex Ham, Teacher at our North Bendigo Preschool, collaboration is key to success.
At the Y, you’ll work with a group of super supportive and passionate people who make every day brighter. Renata Wozniak’s journey is a shining example of the inclusivity and diversity we cherish.
Coming from a small town in south Poland, Renata joined the Y as Room Leader in 2017, bringing with her an immense pride in her Polish heritage.
Today, Renata is the Centre Director of the Y Whittlesea’s Galada Community Centre. She’s responsible for a team of 20 staff who provide education, care and support for more than 230 three to four year olds. And, if that wasn’t enough, she’s also completing a Bachelor of Early Childhood Education under a scholarship.
She emphasises the Y’s unwavering commitment to caring for its people and offering continuous support along the way.
Working at the Y is more than just a job – it’s about being part of a vibrant community that makes a meaningful impact in the lives of others. Rosa Condello’s Y journey started over two decades ago as an Educator at the Y Whittlesea.
Over that time, she’s seen many changes in both her personal and professional life. As a lifelong learner, Rosa has embraced every new position she’s been offered and always puts her hand up to further her knowledge and education.
Now, as a Kinder Coordinator at Orchard Road Community and Early Learning Centre, Rosa still prioritises growth and development for herself and her team.
Our commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment extends to supporting all of our team as they guide the way for the next generation. We value your growth and celebrate your unique contributions so that you feel empowered to make a lasting impact.
