"I wish the government knew how worried I am about the impacts of climate change on our world. The environment is a very important issue that deserves more serious consideration from those in the position to make changes." Ella, 19, NSW.

"The monetary gain of select “individuals” in no way validates the destruction of our nation’s natural resources and the prospects for future Australians.
We must all learn to compromise if we wish to continue to enjoy the unparalleled beauty that we as a country have to offer." Kate, 19, QLD.

On National Sorry Day we come together to acknowledge and commemorate the mistreatment of the stolen generation. Together we can make a commitment to support victims and their families to move towards a reconciled Australia. Healing is a journey and today our thoughts are with those still finding their way home

Keep an eye out on the streets of Adelaide for our shiny new TIAS car from @peterkittlemotors that will be used to visit more people and places around SA to offer advice to tenants. TIAS is a state-wide service that provides free and independent information and advocacy to help people on low incomes sustain their tenancies in private rental, community housing, or public housing. They have helped achieve positive outcomes for many tenants already and this car will be a great way to reach more people needing their assistance.

This week our BOLT students had a fantastic time visiting Unitopia at the @universitysa Magill Campus and although they didn’t get much school work done, they did get to learn lots about personal wellbeing and how to manage stress levels, which is just as important. The students got to have a go at giant jenga, visit the puppy cafe, enjoy a vegan lunch, enter a plank competition, which 2 students won, and meet lots of new people. It was a great opportunity for our students to get some more insight into uni life and show them they can and do belong in an adult learning environment, which may be a path they wish to follow in the future. GO TEAM BOLT!! #ausyouth #youngpeople #youth #nonprofit #cause #makeadifference #charity #dogood #instagood #unitopia #unisa #unilife #reducestress #stressless #teamgame #plankchallenge #winners #greatday #instagreat #fun

Geared to Drive, Get-A-Place and TIAS recently visited Flinders University and spoke to lots of young people at their 'How to Adult' day. The event was all about teaching their students adult skills that can be missed in education, like how to rent your own property, get your license, enter the workforce and many more relevant topics. They day was a huge success and we loved helping the young people on their journey to independence.

“In the future I will have more confidence to apply for jobs. Sitting in a classroom with strangers or going on a placement is something I would never have done before, but now I’ve done it, it has definitely helped me with my confidence.” This is just a snippet of the positive feedback received from graduates of the ‘Get Into Childcare’ pilot program run recently with local service provider Hessel Group. The intensive course provided participants with sector specific skills and work experience opportunities to help get them into employment, but as you can see from the feedback the outcomes are more significant than that. ‘Get into Childcare’ is just one aspect of the ‘Get Into’ project that has come about through our joint venture with @princestrust International to improve youth employment in Australia. We look forward to seeing more positive outcomes for young people taking part in the project.

This week is National Volunteer’s Week and although we are thankful for our volunteers every week, this is a great opportunity to recognise the outstanding contribution they make to our organisation and the work that wouldn’t be possible without them. This year we have 67 active volunteers who have already dedicated 1000 hours of their time across different areas of the organisation which has allowed young people to get their driver’s license, learn literacy and numeracy skills, receive assistance to job search, build social skills from 1:1 mentorship and many other opportunities. Thanks for your outstanding contribution not only from us, but from all the young people you’ve helped along the way.

"I wish the government knew that there is more to schools than academics. Schools can be safe havens where students from all backgrounds have the opportunity to feel supported and valued.
As a teacher of middle school students within the Northern Territory, I have come to understand that the classroom is a microcosm of the real world, and even with my youngest students I can see the pressures of the grown-up world that they are already burdened with. Some of them are the heads of their family, supporting their parents or siblings who are alcoholics or in gaol. I hear kids say racist slurs to each other, who bully each other and fight with each other, and I know they are just internalising and mirroring the worst of their realities, because it’s all they know. For some of these kids, school isn’t merely a place to learn. It is their safe haven. And as their teacher, I feel that sometimes the best way for me to educate them is to not only be their teacher, but to be their person.

Although the themes within 'Romeo and Juliet' are important, so is sitting and talking about our families and plans for the future. Sometimes, class karaoke singalongs and rap battles are what they need more than essay writing and spelling tests. In a world where many of these students face a life harsher than they deserve, it is important to remember that school can also be a place where they can play, have fun, be themselves and feel safe. I tell my students I love them every day, not just because it is true, but because there’s a chance that I might be the only person who tells them that, and it’s something everyone deserves to hear." Hannah, 25, NT.

Some of our BOLT Students recently participated in the “Be a Job Maker’ program run by Flinders University which supports South Australian youth to become entrepreneurs. The 5 week program covers a range of topics from industry exxperts to develop specific skills to prepare young people now for future opportunities. What great knowledge to have.

To celebrate the school holidays our Youth Leadership Team and BOLT students were treated to a fun day of bowling and laser skirmish @kingpinnorwood and it was game on! The young people had a great day spending time with their peers and teachers and celebrating the first term’s achievements. A highlight of the day was the announcement of a number of the young people deciding to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh Award, which is a youth development program that empowers all young Australians between 14 to 25 to explore their full potential, regardless of their location or circumstance. We can’t wait to see the students’ progress over the coming year with @dukeofedaus

We’re super egg-cited to have been presented with a $1200 cheque and a colourful basket of Easter eggs from the students of Yates house at Pembroke School. These middle school children dedicated their own time to organise a raffle and sell tickets to raise funds for HYPA so we could provide our young people with some special gifts this Easter. The funds raised will go towards clothes and resources for young people accessing HYPA services. Thanks to Pembroke School and all the students of Yates house, what a great achievement!

We've crunched the numbers and we are very excited to announce that our 2017 HYPA Boileau Gala Quiz Night raised over $65,000! That is easily our best figure ever and it truly smashed our fundraising target. 👊🎯 Thanks to the generosity of our guests, sponsors and supporters more young people will be able to stand on their own #TwoFeet through HYPA Housing, our affordable housing program.

Our awesome new volunteer Sakina is also a graduate of our Geared2Drive program! 🚗😃 Sakina needed help completing her 75 hours of supervised driving because her parents are unwell and don't drive and we were glad to provide it.

Sakina is now looking for work whilst completing her Cert 3 in Financial Services.
