Child and Youth
AAHYA provides a range of programs for children and young people.

For building health and physical strength, the Karate class is a great way to engage in physical activity in a fun group setting. Targeting young women and girls, the group not only challenges traditional roles but also empowers participants with self-defence and other practical skills.
Mixed Dai Fu

Dai Fu is a traditional form of combat training which builds skills such as confidence, self-defence as well as improving the physical and mental health of its participants. AAHYA began Kung Fu classes in 2011 and, as of 2018, began running Dai Fu classes in their place.

Swimming is an excellent way to stay active and keep cool in the Australian heat. Recognising swimming as an important skill to have in this country, AAHYA has been running swimming programs since 2012 to encourage newly arrived communities to stay safe and active. Under the vigilant watch of highly trained and qualified instructors, the participants are able to acquire the best skills while also developing water safety knowledge.

A relaxed environment for children and young people to bring any homework or tasks that they need support on. Facilitated by bilingual workers, they are able to receive group and individualised support with any questions or difficulties they have.
Every December – January School Holidays
In the past AAHYA has continued to grow its services for the youth and AAHYA Youth Camping has been a major success. Previously major youth camps to recreational centres such Broken Bay, Berry and other recreational centres have been one of the major locations where AAHYA youth camp has been held. The youth camp focuses on a number of targets such as reducing Social Isolation, mental and physical health awareness and also other key aspects of life that newly arrived migrant youth face. The youth camping program varies between 3-4 days where transport is provided, and youth are in the safe hands of AAHYA leaders and Volunteers.
