FYA was established in 2000 through a partnership between The Queen’s Trust and the Australian Youth Foundation.
Over the past 20 years FYA has grown to a non-profit with over 40 team members. We have established systems and resources and are supported by a corpus that gives us independence.
We’re a skilled team with an united passion for backing young people.
Today’s generation of young people in Australia are facing unprecedented and intersecting crises. They also have the skills, insight and ambition to address them.
Our vision is that young people have the power to beat injustice and transform the future. In pursuit of this vision, our purpose is to back young people with the trust, resources, skills, and connections to make change.
