About us

About YouthAdvance Australia

YouthAdvance has a long-standing association with The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Australia. A number of our team members have either completed their Award or acted as Award Leaders or Assessors for various organisations.
We also coordinate the Adventurous Journey component for many schools and organisations around Australia. YouthAdvance has also developed services and strategies to support not only organisations, such as schools, that run the Award but also aid in engaging, retaining and mentoring young Australians. Our goal is to promote the Award and assist in the implementation of the Award in as many schools as possible and to engage as many young Australians as possible. We want young Australians to be able to be part of the Award journey so they can say they are #WorldReady
We pride ourselves on not just being another “tick box operator” but a company that drives change and provides a lasting impact on our Participants.
