The Y believes in the power of inspired young people.

Across all of our services and programmes we’re about igniting potential and empowering greatness, and that’s evident in all of our youth services.

Here at the Y Southland we do youth mentoring, supporting young people on a one-on-one basis as they navigate life’s challenges.

We offer youth development programmes such as Y Squads, where young people can connect with like-minded peers and try a whole range of activities every week – from rock climbing to rock n roll – and we put youth voice at the heart of programme design.

We do youth leadership, whether it’s a one off day for a group or school, or our weekly youth leadership programme that teaches practical leadership skills with a focus on the outdoors.

We do disability and inclusion, working alongside children and young people with disabilities so they can not only participate in but enjoy recreation in an inclusive environment.

We also offer Teen Gym, a weekday gym programme for teens aged 12 to 18 years.

Young people are the future – we’re here to ignite their potential and empower greatness!
