The YMCA Fairthorne Group has urged people on the Isle of Wight to vote in the national Youth Matters Awards.
The Isle of Wight branch is on a shortlist of five, out of 121 YMCAs, hoping to win the coveted YMCA of the Year Award.
It has been listed for its counselling and psychological therapies service for children and young people.
This includes a bereavement support service for under-18s that is part NHS, part charity funded.
The Isle of Wight YMCA is calling upon Islanders to help it qualify for the final shortlist of three.
The final trio will then be assessed by a panel, before the winner is announced.
Chris Hand, chief executive of the YMCA Fairthorne Group, said: "We are really excited about reaching this stage of the process and hope everyone will vote for us. To make it through to the final judging panel would be an amazing feeling for everyone."
• Votes can be cast at www.ymca.org.uk/awards. The deadline is Monday.
