Our projects
Boroondara Youth Foundation is dedicated to growing the capability of young people in our local community. Our vision is to empower Boroondara youth to create and lead their own projects that they believe will positively impact their communities.

We do this by providing grants of up to $1,500 to individuals and groups aged 12 to 25 from local schools, tertiary institutions, community groups, not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises with a ‘community- focused’ idea.

We are so often inspired by the many young people who have used their Boroondara Youth Foundation Grant as a platform to achieve their goals in strengthening their local communities. Here, we share some of their stories.
