Our Stars in the Garden community of supporters and attendees make this event Youth Opportunities’ most significant fundraiser, and enables an important investment into the future of our state. It is an investment that lasts a lifetime, as young people are provided with the opportunity to turn their lives around, positively impacting their families and communities.
We understand that you may not be able to attend the event itself each year but as you know, you can still make an important impact by continuing your support and making a donation in lieu of attendance.
Each year, through the delivery of our evidence-based programs and services, we equip more than 2,000 young people across South Australia with the skills to overcome adversity, build resilience and optimism, and prepare for their future.
In 2021, Youth Opportunities supported 4,668 young South Australians experiencing disadvantage. The positive impact of our programs and services is profound and last year, 93% of young people felt more responsibility for taking action in their lives after completing our Personal Leadership Program.
“Before Youth Opportunities, I was really shy and mainly quiet in school, but now I am myself and I am able to stand up for someone instead of backing away… I cannot wait to start planning out my future and with the help of Youth Opportunities, I am more clear of my future direction.”
