Our Mission

To build confidence, values and resilience in Australia’s young people through significant relationships with adult role models who model the love of Christ.


Our Vision

To be an influential model for impacting Australian young people for Christ, with resultant transformation in the wider community.


Young Life Australia has been working with Australian young people in communities and schools since 1972. As a Christian organisation and registered charity, our desire is to see young people journey into adulthood with a deep sense of value and purpose.

We offer supportive, compassionate mentors who model the love of Jesus and encourage young people to make community connections and positive life choices, now and into their future. 

We do this by:

Building Friendships.

We go where young people are and build personal relationships with them. We care for them, as they are, and believe in who they can be. We build friendships that are genuine and long lasting. We are committed to young people for the long run, regardless of their response to the Good News.


Providing fun, adventurous, life-changing and skill-building experiences.

Our weekly clubs are a place of belonging. We welcome kids in by playing games and singing songs. At the end of it all, we share a simple message about true Hope.
Our Summer camp is consistently voted as “the best time of their lives”. That’s because kids, take off to a place of welcome, of good food, of games and dancing, of small-group time and of revelation. Many of them return transformed and filled with Hope. 


Journeying faith with young people. 

We run weekly meetings for kids who wish to learn more, ask questions or grow in their faith through study, service and leadership.
