Lead On Australia aims to assist young people to develop practical skills in the fields and industries they are passionate about. To achieve these goals, Lead On facilitates practical opportunities for young people to learn, mature and forge their own path in an environment where their opinions and contributions are valued. We seek to connect the community with the delivery of these initiatives by introducing young people to the opportunities that exist within their communities. Lead On sites currently operate in Ballarat and Echuca and Bayswater (WA), with an outreach program operating in Tasmania’s Derwent Valley. These sites are independent incorporated associations and are responsible for co-ordinating and financing a range of youth programs in their region. Projects facilitated by Lead On Australia and its sites are almost always youth devised and led, allowing young people to play an active role in their community.
