Youth Connect delivers a range of programs for young people aged 12–25 in our regional communities.

About Youth Connect

Youth Connect delivers workshops, programs and events with young people in our Region. We provide a range of arts, music, health and sports activities.

We believe strongly in celebrating the passion, energy and achievements of our young people, and work to provide low-cost, accessible youth programs in regional communities.

Youth Connect works with young people, families and service providers to:

  • identify local needs, issues and opportunities
  • support young people's health and wellbeing
  • empower young people to take a lead role in the delivery of youth programs
  • create platforms for young people to connect, belong and participate in their local communities.

Where possible, we also work with local people to support community-led events.
