The YMCA Community Father of the Year award recognises dads and father figures who may think they’re ordinary, but are in fact extraordinary. Every year community members are invited to nominate their father or father figure by writing or drawing about why they are so special to them. Winners will be selected at each participating YMCA centre or service.

The nominations for the YMCA Community Father of the Year are also considered for the Father’s Day Council of Victoria’s prestigious Victorian Father of the Year Award.

This year we congratulate Jobby Mathew for winning our Community Father of the Year award. Jobby was nominated by Jayden for being a great dance partner, story teller and for being a caring loving father. For being this year’s winner, Jobby received a $100 New Balance voucher and a free family entry to the YMCA Father’s Day Fun Run. Thank you to all who entered this year's competition.
