YMCA 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?

Designed for people aged 16-24, YMCA Uplift is a FREE eight-week active wellness program run by a friendly team of Y NSW staff members. While we’re not counsellors or psychologists, we understand the benefits exercise can have on your mental and physical health.

What’s included in the program?

  • 8 weeks FREE fitness membership at your chosen centre, including group fitness classes and small group training
  • Weekly Uplift classes with a group of people around the same age
  • Support and education around a range of topics, including exercising safety, the benefits of exercise, goal setting and eating healthy
  • Ongoing support from Y NSW staff

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
  • Have the ability access to your chosen YMCA Uplift centre easily and conveniently

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.
