Youth Opportunities appreciates the investment and generosity of our major donors whose support has helped us to create positive and lasting change for young people experiencing disadvantage and adversity.
As one of South Australia’s most trusted charities, you can be assured that your gift will be directed to the area of greatest need in creating opportunities for young people, or to an area or region that is important or of interest to you through a tailored partnership that can cover one, or multiple years.
Philanthropy has helped facilitate some of our most significant achievements at Youth Opportunities. From the development of our South East initiative, which supports multiple schools within the region, to our wonderful supporters who each year fund the development and operating costs of our organisation – a major gift brings about positive change that benefits all of us.
After receiving $100,000 from both Impact 100 and the Coopers Brewery Foundation in 2017, Youth Opportunities was able to expand in the South East. The initial investment enabled the employment of a local team, and the initial delivery of programs in Mount Gambier, Grant and Millicent High Schools and Allendale East Area School.
Comprised of community members who volunteer their time and networks to support our fundraising and promotion in the community, a South East Community Development Board was created.
In 2020, this board raised an outstanding $124,00 plus additional in-kind support. This group are tireless advocates of our programs and value the impact they have on young people, actively working with us to improve the future of youth in the region.
