About the Foundation for Young Australians
Today’s generation of young Australians are facing unprecedented and intersecting crises. They also have the skills, insight and ambition to address them.
At the Foundation for Young Australians, our vision is that young people have the power to beat injustice and transform the future.
In pursuit of this vision, our purpose is to back young people with the trust, resources, skills, and connections to make change.
FYA has an incredible history, new CEO, focused strategy, dynamic team and board, and a unique resource base. We are now shaping a future-focused organisation committed to the highest standards of professionalism, culture and conditions, diversity, and impact all centered around our key constituents : young people.
Our work is guided by a commitment to beating injustice. We strongly encourage applications from people with successful track records advocating for justice as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people, people of colour, women, people with disability, LGBTIQA+ communities and migrants to Australia.
We acknowledge our sector has systematically excluded these communities and are committed to changing this.
