Big Dreamers

Being a young person between the ages of 14 and 18 is tough.

Mental health becomes increasingly important for Young Carers at this age, as they navigate identity, career, relationships and the added responsibility of a caring role.

Built from personal experience and qualitative research, the Big Dreamers Personal Development Program runs for six months with 15 inspiring Young Carers aged 14-18. The aim of the program is to empower, develop resilience and provide the opportunity for building new skills and finding hidden talents.

Mentoring

We believe positive role models can create a lasting and vital impact to the lives of Young Carers.

We match Young Carers with a mentor based on interests, experiences, personality and location. Mentors provide Young Carers with someone to hang out with, can offer help with schoolwork, provide guidance and give Young Carers a break from their caring role.

The Young Carer Project

As it stands, 40% of Young Carers do not complete high school, often due to time constraints, lack of support and bullying.

We’re educating students, teachers and parents on what it is to be a Young Carer and how to identify, support and amplify their education journey.

Our new school accreditation program is currently in 10 schools across Victoria.

Find out more and nominate your school to get involved below!
