Youth Frontiers is an initiative of the NSW Government that targets students aged 12-16 years, with the capacity to benefit from the support of a mentor.
Each year, more than 1,200 young people have the opportunity to participate in the program.
Young people participating in Youth Frontiers are matched with mentors who spend at least 35 hours over six months supporting them to achieve their goals. The program gives mentees an opportunity to build life skills and self-confidence through mentoring support and by undertaking a community engagement activity.
The NSW Government announced the following organisations will receive a share of $6.6 million over three years to deliver the program. The organisations delivering Youth Frontiers from 2018 to 2020 are MTC Australia, Raise Foundation, YWCA NSW and Save the Children. In 2020, Save the Children are no longer delivering the Youth Frontiers program.
