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’ve traditionally worked out of our headquarters in Melbourne. Throughout the pandemic we’ve been unlocking a new future of hybrid-working – adapting to online, remote working while still delivering high quality projects – including a new organisational strategy.
We’re a skilled team with an united passion for backing young people.Get to know us
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.
We are collaborative, putting the team’s purpose ahead of individual success.
We know that those facing injustice hold the key to beating it and strive to elevate lived experience.
We believe the world can change, and that we have a role in changing it.
We’re building a culture of innovation and experimentation, and sharing our findings with others so they can evolve to.
We’re seeking to understand and improve systems, not symptoms.
We’re building a culture where transparency is our default, sharing information freely with each other to ensure clarity and alignment.
A dynamic workplace. Our workplace is rapidly evolving, as we combine the best of in-person connection with the flexibility of virtual offices. Whether you’re based in our historic Melbourne laneway office, or working remotely anywhere in Australia, you’ll have access to world class technology, workspaces, and collaboration tools.
Generous leave conditions and flexible work arrangements. We love what we do but understand that life is about more than just work. We offer flexible work arrangements, generous leave including pandemic and cultural leave, and an Employee Assistance Program.
Learning and development. We’re growing fast, and believe that investing in our team to grow with us is essential whether that be taking a class, or taking on a new role. We provide healthy professional development budgets for each team member.
Attractive remuneration. Our team is our key asset – we’re committed to recruiting and retaining world class leaders in youth engagement and social change. We pay competitively, and offer salary packaging.
