Youth Programs

We’ve been working with young people in Victoria for over a century. We know what it takes to help all young people reach their potential in life. Volunteer with young people with:

  • Youth Parliament – a program that gives Victorians from 16-25 years of age a chance to be heard at the highest levels of State Government on a wide range of issues relevant to young people’s lives.
  • UNO-Y Leadership Program (pronounced ‘you-know-why’) - a leadership program for exceptional young people to grow and develop their potential, awareness and leadership capacities.
  • YMCA Bridge Project – provides support, training and employment opportunities to young offenders through mentoring and the development of new skills.
  • YMCA Skate Parks – skate, BMX and scooter lessons for all abilities and age groups as well as competitions.
  • And more!

Children’s Services

We believe in instilling positive & healthy attitudes at an early age by providing a safe, nurturing and fun environment for children to reach their full potential. Volunteer with children and young people through:
