Activities in the Community

YAL is a non-profit organisation like no other, supporting young Australian’s for over 110 years.

From its early years of promoting AFL, to the development to sporting groups, bands, concert parties and touring groups YAL has always been about the best interest of the young people of Australia. Today this support is been transformed into a unique scholarship program that allows the youth themselves to help shape their own futures with a hand up not a hand out.

Tropicana Lodge in Cairns Queensland is another example of this support where international and national students have a comfortable home base while they study in the surrounding educational institutions.



Our current YAL board is made up of 11 dynamic directors who work together to ensure that the vision of the YAL is reflected in all aspects of the organisation. If you would like to know more about members of our board please read on to our meet our team page.
