Empowering youth to be the best they can be

There are 33,000 young people in North Queensland; many facing incredible challenges. National statistics show that 10 young Aussies commit suicide every week, 1 in 4 suffer from depression and 48% of girls try extreme weight loss methods.

Our vision is to empower youth to live a life of purpose.

We engage youth through camps, high school seminars, and local and overseas service projects. Each initiative aims to provide a positive, safe environment where young people feel valued, motivated, and empowered to be the best they can be while serving the needs of others. YWAM Townsville works in partnership with schools, social clubs, youth organisations, and governing bodies.

Youth Adventures

Dynamic missions trips designed for youth and young adults

YWAM Youth Adventures offers incredible short-term opportunities for teams and individuals to come together to be challenged, connect with their world, grow in cross-cultural understanding, and serve courageously. An initial hands-on training phase preps teams to be immersed in diverse communities in North Queensland and Papua New Guinea.



You won’t go unprepared. Our experienced youth workers will work with you to equip you with tools to express yourselves across cultures. Not only will you get practical techniques to prepare yourselves, our hands-on training will prepare you mentally and practically for the adventure that lies ahead!



Our trained staff takes care of all the details—food, housing, transportation, activity and project planning, translation, and supplies so you can focus on experiencing the culture you’re immersed in. Check out our dates and outreach locations below.
