Young Life Australia is part of a Global movement, dedicated to supporting young people to thrive and live a life of purpose.

Help us support Young people in need of a community where they are KNOWN and loved.  

Our Mission

We go where kids are and build personal relationships with them.

We provide fun, adventurous, life-changing experiences.

We work in community alongside like-minded adults (volunteer leaders, committee members, donors and staff).

Our desire is to see young people journey into adulthood with a deep sense of value and purpose.

We believe that every young person deserves the opportunity to experience unconditional love, acceptance, and encouragement. Through our unique blend of mentorship, community-building, and outdoor adventures, we provide a safe space for young people to explore their faith, build meaningful relationships and find hope and purpose in their lives.

From lively club meetings and small group discussions to exhilarating camps and overseas adventures, Young Life Australia offers an array of opportunities for young people to connect, learn, and grow.

Connecting with young people in their world.

“Our young people today are waiting for somebody to care about them enough to take the time and trouble to pour out compassion on them. To prove their friendship. To bridge this tragic and terrible gap that exists in our culture between teenagers and adults.”

Jim Rayburn, Jnr (1909 – 1970) founder of Young Life
