After school programs during school terms

A fun, safe space for young people to meet with friends and peers to try new activities, develop new skills and learn about topics relevant to young people. Activities are free and dinner is included. Guest speakers and groups are encouraged to come and get involved.

'Make A Difference Youth Group' is on Tuesday – 4.30pm – 6.30pm.

Mentoring program

YMCA offers a mentoring program for young people who are disengaged from school or work. Staff work with young people to identify their individual needs and goals. Goals are set for each young person and worked towards throughout their time in the Back2School program. These goals can be related to anything in a young person's life that they are wanting to work on.

School Holiday programs

YMCA is the place to be in the school holidays! Our team works hard to create innovative, fun, interactive school holiday programs.

YMCA would not be able to operate our youth programs in Katherine without the support of our sponsors. Thank you to the Australian Government and Northern Territory Government for their ongoing support of YMCA’s programs for young people.
