Vision & Approach
The need for engagement within our community to support our young people is greater than ever! Statistics are highlighting the rates of disengagement, suicide, and mental health challenges young people are facing, however we have not lost hope. We believe the youth of Australia and Papua New Guinea have great potential and we are excited for everything our youth programs have to offer them.
With over 30 years of experience working with young people YWAM has seen the challenges faced by youth and what it takes to overcome these challenges. Our youth engagement is designed to speak into the relevant issues that are being faced and develop skills that empower them with the confidence to face these issues.
YWAM hopes to create a safe environment for youth to belong, believing everyone has the right to hope for an abundant and healthy life physically, mentally, socially, and spiritually.
