Young Changemakers is an annual group leadership program for young people aged 12-17 in the Eastern Dandenong Ranges. Participants meet weekly with program facilitators and are supported and empowered to work together in identifying needs and aspirations of their peers, and design and deliver youth-led activities in our local area.

Across the year participants engage in hands-on-learning experiences and develop skills and knowledge in:

  • Effective teamwork
  • Stakeholder engagement
  • Designing surveys and interpreting results
  • Identifying community needs
  • Planning events and activities that respond to community needs
  • Working to KPI’s
  • Budgeting
  • Risk assessment and management
  • Outcome measurement and reporting

Youth-led events are held in the second-half of each year. Previous youth-led events delivered by our Young Changemakers include: Youth Hangout / Chill pop-up spaces; Cooking Classes; Gaming and Virtual Reality events; Photography workshops and Art workshops.
