Support a leading youth development program and offer the learning and development experience of a lifetime to a young person in your community. 

Community groups, schools, councils, not-for-profits and businesses can sponsor a young person to sail in Young Endeavour through our Scholarship Program. If you are interested in sponsoring a young person to sail please click on these links:communitycorporate or email us for details. 

Organisations can also take advantage of the Young Leaders Program, and corporate hospitality and training days for staff. In addition, the Young Endeavour Youth Scheme gratefully accepts donations to its tax deductible public trust.

Alumni and Ambassadors

Since 1988 more than 11,000 young Australians have completed a voyage in Young Endeavour. They have gone on to live rich and varied lives, inspiring others and making a strong contribution to Australian society. 

Our alumni have pursued careers in fields such as teaching, medicine, law, finance, engineering, and performing arts. They work with youth with special needs, serve in the Australian Defence Force, and volunteer for youth organisations in Australia and around the world. Some of our alumni continue to work with the Young Endeavour Youth Scheme, promoting the voyage program, volunteering at events, making donations or sponsoring youth to join a voyage in Young Endeavour.

Young Endeavour Youth Ambassadors are our voice in communities across Australia. They are alumni of the Young Endeavour Program who continue their association with the ship and with the Young Endeavour Youth Scheme by sharing their experiences and their stories and by inspiring other young Australians to join a voyage in Young Endeavour.
