​​​YMCA's Young Entrepreneur's Programs

Australia is facing some of the highest youth unemployment and underemployment rates in recent times, particularly in regional centres. YMCA works to develop entrepreneurial skills in young people and empowers them to think entrepreneurially. We encourage young people to create jobs as an empowered response to the current job climate.

EVOLVE

​YMCA Evolve develops the social and emotional intelligence and enterprise skills of Year 6 students in preparation for their transition into high school. Over eight weeks, students participate in high energy, experiential activities aligned with the Victorian Curriculum that enable them to reflect on and develop their Personal and Social Capability.
