In 2022, because of our fantastic partners, Youth Opportunities was able to support over 3,500 young people through our personal leadership programs, graduate engagement activities, scholarships, social enterprise, workshops, and wraparound services.

The measurement and analysis of our programs are as much a part of the delivery as the content itself. Using internationally-recognised measures, such as K10, MHC-SF, EPOCH and Locus of Control, we consistently use statistical analysis to assess the effectiveness and impact of our programs. To learn about the impact of our programs and services, view our latest organisation report.
