Holiday Program

Our Holiday Program gives Young Carers the opportunity to have some fun on the school holidays, connect with other Young Carers and take some time out from their caring role.

Run in Melbourne and Sydney every school holidays, these full days of fun include workshops, arts and crafts, exercise, dance, drama and music, in awesome locations such as Luna Park!

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.

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!

We met Alex a couple of years ago. Alex is a primary carer for his mum, who has a condition called Transverse Myelitis and is permanently in a wheelchair. This means that Alex takes on lots of extra household duties and care tasks, in addition to being very committed to his studies. Alex is determined, hard working and humble, and his mum Amanda is also a superstar (and a former wheelchair basketball champion)! Alex has participated in a range of our programs, including Holiday Programs, Mentoring and most recently, Big Dreamers, and we've watched him develop from a quiet kid who found it difficult to articulate his caring role to his friends and teachers, to someone who recently shared his story on national television with Waleed on @theprojecttv (and also sang karaoke in front of an audience at our retreat)! We're so proud to be part of Alex's journey! 💫 #YoungCarer #LDDreamBig ...
