Diversity &
Inclusion Project

Local young people have told us they care deeply about diversity and inclusion. Y Ballarat values the individual worth, uniqueness and inclusion of all people and have listened!

Our Diversity & Inclusion Project Worker is:

  • Supporting Y Ballarat on its journey of continuous improvement to create an organisation that seeks, values and celebrates diversity.
  • Working alongside LGBTIQA+ Pride groups in schools to connect and collaborate on a multi school level, creating opportunities for students to network, learn skills and connect in with the broader LGBTIQA+ community, both locally and beyond.

We believe in the power of inspired young people and are excited to be working alongside local LGBTIQA+ students on activities and initiatives that meet their needs.

Pride in Schools: Building Futures is the second inter-school youth conference for Pride group students in secondary school. Students will work together in groups to identify and plan Pride initiatives, connect with community in Ballarat and gain valuable event and leadership skills to take back to their school.

If you are a school staff member and want to register students to attend this event, please register them HERE.
