Young Social Pioneers

Watch the video
Young Social Pioneers is Australia’s premiere Incubator designed to exclusively support young people leading initiatives that respond to society’s most pressing challenges, either through advocacy, community organising or business.

The economic, social and environmental problems Australia and the world currently face, from discrimination to climate change to unemployment – are diverse, complex and pressing.

At the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) we believe in young people’s capacity to respond to these challenges; to create a future in which they can live with dignity and pursue their dreams and ambitions.

With a focus on innovation and sustainable solutions, YSP develops the competencies, networks and ecosystem requisite to being a successful young changemaker.

If you are working on something that seeks to make the world a better place, we would love to hear from you!

Applications for Young Social Pioneers 2017 have closed! If you’ve applied, you will be notified of the outcome by the 21st of July.
