As a nation, we are working together to follow restrictions and help save lives, particularly the lives of those in the community who are vulnerable. Research has shown that due to the effects of COVID-19, young people are disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, experiencing increased stress and anxiety. In light of this, we think it’s more important than ever to stay connected and engaged throughout this time. 

Celebrations of all kinds were cancelled or rescheduled, including Victorian Youth Week – now running in November 2020. As the oldest youth organisation in the world, we still want to celebrate young people That’s why we are hosting Y-Solation Thursdays! 

What is Y-Solation?

Y-Solation is a series of Facebook live-streams by young people for young people. The live-streams will be positive and fun, ensuring young people have the opportunity to connect with one another throughout this particularly difficult period. During the live-streams, people of all ages are welcome to join in, ask questions and share ideas.

Join us every Thursday for sessions on cooking, fitness, arts and crafts, music, trivia and more!

To join, go to the YMCA Victoria Facebook page, or check out our previous Y-Solation sessions.
