YFS’ CEO Cath Bartolo has decided to leave YFS in February 2023.

As CEO, Cath has spent the past 20 years building YFS into a dynamic organisation with a strong track record of backing vulnerable people to overcome adversity and to thrive.

Cath recognised the need for a holistic approach to back people to achieve real change in their lives, and has fostered integration efforts, service expansion, partnerships and prevention initiatives.

Cath has been a passionate advocate for vulnerable people in Logan, and has played key roles in initiatives including Logan Together and Logan City of Choice and Not Now, Not Ever in Logan. In 2022 she was awarded Member of the Order of Australia in recognition of her many years of service to Logan, to young people and to the community sector.

Under her leadership, YFS has grown, innovated and achieved amazing outcomes. Cath has invested in the management and staff at YFS, mentoring strong leaders and committed workers.
