  • YMCA Youth Hubs

    Our Youth Hubs in West Ballarat and South Ballarat provide safe and structured environments for young people aged 10 - 17 years to have fun with their friends, participate in various activities and learn new skills. We believe in the power of inspired young people and encourage them to shine in their everyday lives and build strong futures.

    At our Youth Hubs, our dedicated staff and volunteers organise a wide variety of activities and opportunities for young people to learn and acquire specific skills. Sessions may include an incursion, excursion, sports, and are centred on five general themes: social engagement, job skills training, independence skills training, safety education and health promotion.

    Young people have the opportunity to be involved, feel heard and to take part in leadership roles.
