1YP Day is one of the most important (and fun) days on the Youth Projects calendar. Its a day where all of our frontline warriors and changemakers come together, reflect on our enormous achievements over the past 12 months, celebrate our peers and pause to connect with one-another.

This year we'll also be welcoming many new faces to their first ever 1YP Day, including members of our Youth and Consumer Advisory Groups!

Registrations are ESSENTIAL! 

This is a free event, exclusively for Youth Projects staff and special invitees only. All staff are strongly encouraged to attend on the day and should chat to their manager to discuss movements/rostering.


This year's program is PACKED TO THE RAFTERS with special guests, keynote presentations, program spotlights, awards, special performances (announced soon!) and a fireside yarn with none other than local icon (and G.O.A.T)... Father Bob Maguire!

About the venue

The Victorian Pride Centre is the first purpose-built centre for Australia's LGBTIQ+ communities to connect, support and amplify LGBTIQ+ voices, resources, services and groups so that our communities are cohesive, resilient and thrive. It is a place to pave new directions for LGBTIQ+ communities, while honouring and celebrating their brave – and at times difficult – past. It is home to practical and supportive services and will grow into a destination for visitors from across Australia, and beyond.
