Client Award Centres

YouthAdvance Australia is proud to introduce an exciting new initiative that is solely focused on providing support services to Schools, Award Units and independent Participants of The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award. Through our services, we are able to continue to support the accessibility of the Award to all young Australians. YouthAdvance Australia’s mission is to provide opportunities to young Australians which will challenge and reward them through active engagement, personal pursuits and community-based projects. We do this by providing a safe framework that takes our Participants outside their comfort zone. From structured mentoring and encouragement, our ultimate goal is that our Participants are equipped for work and life. 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.
