Because LYF is powered by volunteers, every dollar donated goes directly to activities and experiences for LYF teens and mentors. 

Leading Youth Forward (LYF) relies on the generosity of its donors to continue providing mentorships to at-risk Perth teens.


Thanks to the generous donations from supporters we have been able to provide our teens with a wider variety of experiences beneficial to their development.


In 2019-20 LYF was able to:

  • Run a weekend long camp at Forrest Edge for 80+ teens and their mentors, with a great range of activities including the flying fox, pamper pole, air rifles, abseiling, cooking and wellbeing.

  • 4 Big Day Outs with a focus on positive experiences and development opportunities, including Job Preparation, exploring University Pathways, Skate Boarding, Ice Skating and many more.

  • Run the year long Youth Leadership Committee initiative which saw nine senior teens meet regularly to attend additional development activities, to plan their very own Big Day Out for their peers, while also offering feedback on activities and the direction of the charity.

On behalf of our teens, we would like to ask you to donate to LYF so that we are able to continue to provide these services. Every contribution helps to build LYF and facilitate the growing needs of the teens we work with.

LYF is a registered charity and all donations over $2 are tax deductible, with receipts sent on request, or automatically generated for donations through Give Now. As an organisation run entirely by volunteers, every cent donated to LYF goes directly to the teens.

If you are a supporter of LYF and would be willing to conduct or assist any other fundraising initiatives, we would love to hear from you.
