2018: Young Life Bathurst

Young Life Club opens in Hawker

It’s happening. Our first Belconnen Club! And if you are in the Hawker-Belconnen area and in high school or college, you are invited…

Young Life Canberra is responsible for pancakes and Bubble Soccer at Belconnen High.

You can expect games, challenges, themes, food and a chance to relax and chat. It’s fun, a bit crazy and a really good place to hang out with friends outside of school.

The team who are leading Club are volunteers and are known to students at Belconnen High for running the pancake breakfast.

Young Life Australia runs camps as well as Clubs, including a national Summer Camp held in Jindabyne every January.

“So come along, don’t miss out. We meet this week on Thursday, 12th April, and every second-week starting next term in weeks 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10,” says Alex.

What: Young Life Belconnen, a youth group for all high-school and college-age young people

When: Thursday, April 12 at 3.36pm and every second week from the beginning of Term Two.

Where: Corner of Beetaloo St and Belconnen Way (Christ Church Hawker)

The venue for Young Life Belconnen, Christ Church Hawker

MAY 25: National Fundraising Dinner

Volunteers return from Summer Camp

Summer Camp was a huge success and in the latest edition of Young Life Australia’s Connections newsletter we hear from volunteers, Robyn, Yianni, Glenn and Jade.

Robyn had come all the way from Kingaroy in Queensland.

“I didn’t really know what I was coming to and what I found was a lot of noise, fun, sincerity, love, and challenging experiences.”

“The campers heard some excellent talks and experienced amazing love, concern and care.”

This year’s camp involved 80 volunteers on Summer Staff or Work Crew. To hear more from Yianni, Glenn and Jade, view the latest edition of Connections online.

“Income from donations and fundraising totaled $1,139,928, the result of regular giving and the fundraising efforts and activities taking place in the areas where Young Life operates.

Volunteers make the best members

Did you know, as a Young Life volunteer you can become a member?

Young Life welcomes people from the communities in which we serve to be members of our organisation. This is a great way to affirm your support for Young Life’s purpose and show your interest in helping the organisation develop and sustain its work among young people.

Ideally, we’d love all our volunteers to become members and our AGM in September 2017 is an opportunity to submit new candidates.

Interested? Then act today! There is a document to read and a form to be filled in. You must be nominated and seconded by an existing member. Call our national office and we will direct you to the right person.

  1. Download and read the membership information
  2. If you agree, sign the form and phone Llew Morris at the National Office on 02 9877 5144 who will advise you from there.

What does it cost? 

There are two tiers of membership:

Association members have the right to vote at the AGM. This is $40 per annum

Young Life partners do not have voting rights. This is $20 per annum.

These small payments will help Young Life administer important aspects of being a volunteer organisation such as training and insurance needs; as well as managing child safety.
