Young Social Pioneers

The future is going to look very different.

Young Social Pioneers (YSP) is Australia’s only incubator for our nation’s emerging social innovators, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs and changemakers aged 18-29 years.

Over six months you will work alongside 50 participants, build your business and leadership skills, turbocharge your social impact, meet world-class mentors, develop a network of impact-driven partners, join a passionate community of innovators and gain access to Australia’s only free co-working space for young people. Not to mention, our partners have generously offered up to $50,000 in total seed funding to be won!

All this and you won’t pay a cent $$ thanks to our generous partners.

“Skills like thorough and critical evaluation, goal setting and business planning – which are more practical – have been absolutely invaluable to me since I left YSP and continued to develop Road to Refuge further.” – Dana Affleck, YSP Alumni



“I feel more confident in my ability to be a leader and a spokesperson for Empowered Together. The most important change though is my new wealth of networks. The program allowed me to develop close personal friendships as well as fruitful business relationships.” – Ayeesha Singh, YSP Alumni



dean“I consider myself a changed person after the YSP program. I feel more confident in my abilities, have greater clarity in my vision and life legacy that I am working toward, and feel incredibly inspired to achieve extraordinary things thanks to the amazing presenters / guest speakers of the program.” – Dean Cohen, YSP Alumni
