Young Endeavour undertakes around 20 eleven day voyages each year, mostly along the east and south coasts of Australia. On each voyage we embark 24 young Australians - the Youth Crew - and nine specially trained Royal Australian Navy Staff Crew.


To sail in Young Endeavour apply for our ballot (which is like a lottery). The ballot opens twice each year. To increase your chances of being selected, we recommend applying for as many voyages as you can.

The Young Endeavour Youth Scheme has been closely monitoring the current COVID-19 virus situation both in Australia and overseas.

The rapid spread of the virus and the need to minimise the risk of infection and subsequent potential spread of the virus across the community requires the Scheme to reconsider the delivery of the Young Endeavour Youth Development Program.

As of February 2021, we are resuming a COVID-19 Safe Voyage Program beginning with Sydney based voyages for Youth Crew from New South Wales.
We are planning for voyages later in 2021 to other destinations and for candidates from other states.
