The Young Endeavour Youth Scheme is a not for profit organisation which provides young Australians aged 16-23 with a unique, challenging and inspirational experience at sea aboard the national sail training ship Young Endeavour. For more than 30 years, the Young Endeavour Youth Scheme has been recognised internationally as a leading youth development program.

Our voyages increase self awareness, develop teamwork and leadership skills and create a strong sense of community responsibility amongst members of the youth crew. Young people reap enormous benefit from the Young Endeavour Youth Scheme’s sail training program, and in turn, the Australian people also benefit as participants recognise their potential to make positive contributions to the community.
