​YMCA Listen Up You​th Summit, 2021

Are you a young person in Year 8 or Year 9?
Raise your voice and make a difference! 


In 2019, we hosted our first Youth Summit and every young person who attended told us that mental health was important to them. They also said that they wanted to keep talking about mental health and that there should be more chances to do this. 

The Y's Youth Summit aims to elevate the voices of young pe​​ople about the issues that are important to them, including mental health. We are planning a 2021 Listen Up Youth Summit which will give young people an opportunity to get involved, connect with other young people and listen to other amazing young people share their experiences  Young people will be able to develop new skills, ideas and knowledge as well as an understanding of ways to look after their own mental health and that of those around them.

For more information about how you or your school can get involved contact ballarat@ymca.org.au or
