Boroondara Deanery
Parishes: Hawthorn, Kew, Balwyn and Deepdene with Xavier and Genazzano Colleges and the MAGIS Youth
Group name: YEP (Youth Engagement Project) 
YEP  aims to be a continuous source of formation and presence for youth, during and beyond school, in the areas of: Prayer and Worship, Community Life, Service and Justice, Personal and Spiritual Formation, Leadership Development and Pastoral Care. The ultimate goal is to empower young people to live as disciples of Jesus Christ, and to invite them into responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Church both within and beyond their local community.

To do this YEP takes an active role in the spiritual journey of young people, throughout a variety of ages. The youngest contact comes at the time of confirmation where older students in YEP run a retreat for all students in the area who are making their confirmation. This contact is maintained throughout years 7 and 8 with occasional formation and social events.

For students in years 9-12 there are two camps a year which are chances for intense formation over the course of a weekend and to experience community living with like-minded people. For those looking for an extra challenge, YEP also has two solidarity experiences each year, for older students to experience simple, community living while engaging in service.

The constants throughout this journey are ministry opportunities through the YMCA at the Melbourne Youth Justice Centre, the developing Youth Masses which draw young people into involvement with church and monthly youth events for students in years 10-12 which are an opportunity to build relationship with other youth as well as receive spiritual and personal formation in an engaging environment. Post school, the Checkpoint evenings are a fortnightly chance for young adults to join together for prayer and a meal in community.

YEP runs a variety of youth and young adult ministries as well as camps and retreats. Regular events include:
•TGI Fridays: Our TGIF Youth Group (aka. Thank God it’s Friday) is the place to be for young people ages 15 and up. We meet every second Friday at the Hawthorn Parish Centre.
•Young Adult: Our Young Adult Ministry or 'YAM' is the place to be for Young Adults involved in YEP. We meet every second Tuesdays at Hawthorn and also run social events and camps throughout the year
•Soup Van: YEP organises a team of volunteers that work on the North Melbourne Soup Van each week.
•Youth Mass: The YEP community invites everyone from all ministries throughout the parishes to come together to celebrate at the monthly Youth Mass led by young people with meaningful input and vibrant music.
