Youthrive Victoria is a not-for-profit organisation that operates in Victoria, Australia. We have over 380 alumni from all over the state. Most are students and/or are working. All our activities are designed and delivered by young rural Victorians for young rural Victorians.

Our Purpose is to strengthen rural communities by supporting young people to be leaders.

Our Mission is that we will collaborate with partners, donors, communities and alumni in delivering services to young rural Victorians that assist them to develop their personal, professional and leadership capacities.

We have been planning the Rural Youth Network with staff from Deloitte for a while and we are pleased that we could bring the launch forward in response to the massive changes facing our world right now.

The resources have been compiled or created by alumni and staff. We present everything to you in good faith, based on our own experiences, research and knowledge. We do not claim to be experts in psychology or technology. We love learning, leading and building communities…so join us on this journey.
