yConnect 2023 | July 7 – 9 2023 | Take the Driver’s Seat


A three-day residential conference that will answer one of life’s BIG questions! Anything but your ordinary yLead conference. Our boldest and most innovative personal and social development experience. Curated specifically for our yLead family, to connect our valued yTeam from all over Australian and New Zealand, uniting in one location.


yConnect is for the young at heart and those who continually look for opportunities to grow and develop. It is an opportunity for past and present yTeam, conference graduates and yTravellers to come together. You are also welcome to invite friends and family outside the yLead network.

Take the Driver’s Seat

What is the vehicle I need to live my life fully aligned?

When you are aligned, something shifts. It’s like the world suddenly clicks! You’re ready. You purposefully place your hands on the steering wheel, and drive confidently in the direction you choose. Through the twists and turns, you enjoy the journey, yet you have absolute determination to reach YOUR destination. You are in the driver’s seat.

This yConnect will be filled with more thrills, spills, and life skills than ever before! Expand the toolkit necessary to support you and your future, and learn what it takes to stay in your own lane. After three-days, you will feel confident and capable to drive forward in all areas of your life!

You are the driver of your own life. Don’t let anyone steal your seat!

Take the Driver’s Seat

  • Ride the river alongside your pit crew

  • Get mobile and take the path less travelled

  • Manoeuvre the twists and turns of difficult conversations

yConnect is a gift to our yTeam. Every year yLead HQ comes together to curate a unique experience that honours all of you. We want this experience to be accessible to all no matter their financial situation, however it still costs money to purchase conference resources, merchandise as well as provide food and accommodation.

The full investment is $347 incl GST. Investment includes facilitation of program, all activities, yConnect merchandise, accommodation, and meals. Full payment is due June 16, 2023.
