Empowering youth to be the best they can be

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

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.

We engage youth through camps, high school seminars, and local and overseas service projects to provide a positive, safe environment where they 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 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 throughout North Queensland and Papua New Guinea.

"It was awesome to journey through the 5 or so days of outreach prep learning more and more. Once we got to Palm the experience was incredible, just hanging with the children and talking to the people in the church was super. Overall the whole experience was awesome, every opportunity we were given was an incredible one and I’d definitely do it again"Youth Adventures Student, Darcy L

"Every time I come back to YWAM I instantly feel like I’m back home. Everyone you meet generally wants to know and be friends with you, at YWAM you feel wanted and free to explore and strengthen your faith. The atmosphere that YWAM Townsville encompasses has allowed me to know and strengthen the best version of myself.  Every Youth Adventures trip that I have been on has allowed me to gain a new perspective on my faith, myself, and the world. It refuels my tank, allowing me to walk home, confident that I can make an impact and conquer my own life adventures."Lucy P, Youth Adventures Student
