Youth Frontiers

Youth Frontiers promotes leadership and civic engagement

Youth Frontiers is an electorate-based mentoring program for Year 8 and 9 students. Proudly funded by the NSW Government Department – Family and Community Services, Youth Frontiers sees more than 1,200 students participate each year.

Participants receive 30 hours mentoring, including 10 hours of one-on-one mentoring over the course of the program. Young people will build life skills and self-confidence by working collaboratively with their mentor and stakeholders to undertake a project that makes a positive difference in their local community.

Youth Frontiers runs during the school year, with information sessions in Term 1. The mentoring and project components take place in Terms 2 and 3, culminating in showcases across the state where participants present the results of their projects. In Term 4, young people with the most innovative and effective community projects will be recognised at a State Awards Ceremony.
