Empowering young Victorians by delivering programs that develop leadership skills, resilience and self-esteem to the benefit of our communities.
Our programs create experiences that change lives as young people connect with their communities and are recognised for their achievements.
Each program empowers young people of any ability to develop their skills, improve their physical and mental health, increase their resilience, connect with new peers and mentors, and discover new pathways for their future.
Established in 1961 our core values – courage, community, innovation and integrity – underpin our commitment to providing equitable access and opportunities for all regardless of ability, social or economic circumstance.
Awards Victoria works with over 50,000 young people and 350 educational institutions and community organisations. Each organisation collaborates with government, community, business and other educational bodies to support their young people through the Awards.
We support this process, providing training and resources to create long-term, sustainable community partnerships.
