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.

Consequently, we have cancelled the previously announced voyage program.

 It should be noted that these voyages have been cancelled as a precautionary measure and should be seen as part of the broader community’s response to the issue.

We understand that this decision will create great disappointment. 

On resumption of the Voyage Program we hope that you will be able to sail with us and to that end you can make an application for the Post Pandemic Voyages. When our new program is announced, we will reach out to new applicants and find a voyage to suit you.

Meanwhile, the Scheme wants you and your family to stay well.
