Youth Programs

The Y Ballarat Youth programs are all about young people aged 10-25 in Ballarat and the surrounding communities. Our team of passionate youth workers believe in the power of inspired young people and help them have fun, learn, feel empowered, share their voices and reach their full potential.

All Y Ballarat Youth programs are inclusive to all young people and focus on having fun, developing life skills and positive relationships. Programs run after school hours and during term breaks and are safe, welcoming and supervised environments.

Interested in volunteering?

Volunteers are most welcome. If 18+, volunteers are interviewed and if recruited must complete a Y Ballarat induction and a Volunteer Working With Children Check.

For more info, check out our  Facebook page or give us a call on (03) 4311 1500.
