Why work for us

The Foundation for Young Australians (or FYA) is an Australian non-profit organisation committed to creating generational transformation by improving the learning outcomes and life opportunities of young Australians. Projects of the foundation include the Safe Schools Coalition Australia and publishing research. The organisation aims to foster young peoples education and social participation. Tracing back to 1977, FYA has a history of partnering with individuals, organisations and schools. FYA was formed in 2000 through a partnership between The Queen’s Trust (1977-2000) and the Australian Youth Foundation (1987-2000), with the objectives of providing increased opportunity and access for young people of disadvantaged backgrounds, and supporting the leadership development of young Australians.
