what is yep?
Youth members (13-19) earn points known as surf creds for engaging in a wide range of activities offered by Surf Life Saving, with a goal of gaining nationally recognised awards and a log of achievements and contribution. Participants need to engage in all areas of Surf Lifesaving to gain an award level. There are 3 levels of awards with awesome prizes awarded when a participant reaches each level. We also hold monthly events where we can all get together and do something fun as a group.

As part of the YEP Gold, level a community project must be undertaken and completed. The project is to be chosen by the participant in consultation with the YEP coordinator, and must be of benefit to your club, branch or state. You are able to ask
for assistance from your club as well as branch or State Centre, and this may be offered to you by way of advice, resources or direction. The project has to be the participant’s idea and of significance. It should either involve solving a problem that you have noticed at your club or develop an idea they have within Surf Life Saving.
