About Jimmy’s Youth Wellbeing Sanctuary

Jimmy’s Youth Wellbeing Sanctuary is focused on empowering young people to improve their wellbeing through education, connection, holistic treatments and experiences. Jimmy's is located in Rosebud on the Mornington Peninsula. The building is owned by Jimmy’s Foundation and programs are run by YMCA Youth Services, part of YMCA Victoria (also known as ‘the Y’).

After operating on the Mornington Peninsula for more than a decade, the Y’s programs now have a new permanent home that is big, bright and welcoming for all – at Jimmy’s Youth Wellbeing Sanctuary.

Our primary focus is to help young people gain control of themselves as they navigate the challenges and changes in circumstance they face through their teenage years. Jimmy’s celebrates diversity and provides a safe space for young people of all backgrounds to access a range of wellbeing services delivered by the Y.


  • Residential retreats: two nights to one week stays
  • After school programs: four days per week
  • Wellness practitioner program: including Reiki, acupuncture and naturopathy (by appointment)
  • Mental health first aid course training (by appointment)

Our services are free to young people most in need, living in or around the Mornington Peninsula.

Adults accessing our services can do so for a donation that will support free access for our young people.

Both Jimmy’s and the Y are not-for-profit organisations who rely on government financial support and community donations.
