Health & Wellbeing

YAY programs promote positive mental health through physical, social, and psychological spaces and mental health awareness. Topics explore various ways of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

We explore health from an emotional, psychological, social and communal perspective and includes:

  1. An increased awareness of effects/ramification of using drugs and alcohol at an early age
  2. Increased involvement in sport and other physical activities
  3. Racism and discrimination and their effects on health

Education & Training

YAY is continually building relationships with Registered Training Providers (RTO) to find creative and innovative ways to simplify the process of learning. Young people are linked to TAFE, universities, qualified tutors and numerous service providers. Feedback from YAY’s overall work is made available to education and training providers.

Youth Activating Youth has incorporated this strategy into their overall approach and programs because:

  1. Disadvantaged young people will have access to customised support
  2. It will make it easier for young people to decide on their immediate career pathway
  3. They establish respectful relationships and networks
