Overview and Funding Priorities

Newsboys Foundation provides grants to community organisations working with disadvantaged young people aged 11 – 21 in Victoria. Generally, we support projects and programs in education, the arts, outdoor education, sport, vocational/life skills and social enterprises.

In particular we focus on supporting projects that engage with:

  • Young people from low socio-economic circumstances
  • Young people in rural and regional Victoria
  • Young indigenous people
  • Young refugees and asylum seekers
  • Young people with disabilities

Priority is given to initiatives that help disengaged young people re-engage with education, with an emphasis on one or more of the following:

  • Successful transition from primary to secondary school
  • Completion of secondary school
  • Successful transition from secondary education into further education, a trade, training or suitable employment
