We are a newly established youth charity based in Melbourne that is boldly taking a very different and exciting road!
In these challenging and changing times, we are passionate about inspiring young people to be the best versions of themselves and feeling empowered to change their world for good and help others to do the same.
Instead of focusing on what’s wrong, we inspire youth to move towards goals that energise and make them the best versions of themselves. We are focused on young people having positive connections with other young people to build a sense of deep belonging. Young people need to be led by hope and their own inspired goals to help navigate their lives away from mental illness and loneliness. At Highway, young people can feel connected, heard, safe and inspired.
At Highway, we help young people to find their way in life.
A Highway Youth Facilitator is a very special person. They help young people feel belonging and inspire them to become the best version of themselves, through transformational and inspiring group sessions and workshops. They would have fulfilled the rigorous Highway Youth Facilitator’s Accreditation which encompasses youth wellbeing, coaching, facilitation and mental health first aid.
They work with young people aged 14 to 25 years of age to talk about things that are important and inspire young people to take action in their life. Highway Foundation brings groups of similar young people together online across Australia led by an awesome Highway Youth Facilitator. Our Highway Youth Facilitators have the gift of listening. They hold a safe space without judgement so young people can speak their truth. By focusing on a young person’s journey through their day to day experiences and conversations of their life and shared experience among the group– we can make powerful moments and transformational change.
