Uplift

Young people face a lot of challenges. What’s happening with studies, at home, work, or with friends can have an impact on your wellbeing and mental health. Sometimes it can feel a bit out-of-control.

Exercise and eating healthy can play a big part in getting you back-on-track, but where do you start?

Uplift is a FREE 6 week active wellness program designed for people aged 16-24. Uplift is run by a friendly team of Y NSW staff who support young people to enhance their physical health, and boost overall wellbeing; all whilst having fun and connecting with peers.

What’s included in the program?

  • 6 weeks FREE fitness membership at your chosen centre, including group fitness classes and small group training*
  • Gain skills and knowledge around a range of topics, including exercising safety, the benefits of exercise, goal setting, eating healthy, and positive mental health strategies.

* Only programs run at Y recreation centres include a fitness membership.

You are eligible to register if you are:

  • Between 16-24 years old
  • Would like support to get back on track with your fitness and wellbeing due to facing some challenges with mental health, stress with studies, family life or friends
  • Feel comfortable in a group setting

We also welcome referrals from parents, caregivers, youth and service providers working with groups of young people to submit registrations on-behalf of young people that want to join the program.
