Youth & Camps

We have given 1658 meals to youth over 12 months.

Every young person needs somewhere where they can simply be known, to have some fun and to belong.  

School Programs

100% of girls undertaking our school program say their social identity improves.

Our school programs are aimed at helping young girls understand their worth, gain equity and help with their overall social esteem.

Employment

57% of our workplace were under the age of 25yrs

Every time a young person is employed not only do they receive a wage, they are empowered, connected socially and most importantly they begin to hope for a better tomorrow.

5 Tote-ally Awesome Stories From Youth Camp

The tote bags held a “youth camp starter kit” including; a tribal t-shirt, a water bottle, notebook, a carefully chosen bible and a welcome message with a QR code taking them to a personalised video. Throughout the entirety of camp we were amazed at the impact these items had on the youth and we would love to share some of these stories with you.
