YAK is a charitable organization working to provide opportunities, support, resources, information, training and encouragement to youth in Perth and the surrounding rural area.
YAK provides youth with valuable experiences of personal development, opportunities for spontaneous socialization, and exposure to the benefits of positive role models. Community youth come to the centre voluntarily creating stellar opportunities for youth engagement initiatives. Youth acceptance into our programs and activities is universal and non-conditional.
Over the past decade, YAK has made a remarkable impact on the well being of local youth and the community of Perth and District. These accomplishments include a full roster of recreational and fun activities, after school programs, life skills and employment development, substance use and abuse awareness and homeless youth support.
