Ministry of Youth Development

Here at YMCA Nelson "Youth" are a big part of what we do. We aim to meet the development needs of the diverse Victory youth community & also those of the wider Nelson/Tasman youth population.


We do this via a range of events, projects, programmes & services based at the YMCA Nelson permises & in wider community settings.
