Activities in the Community
YAL is a non-profit organisation like no other, supporting young Australians for more than 110 years.
From its early years of promoting AFL to the development of sporting groups, bands, concert parties and touring groups, YAL has always been about the best interests of young people of Australia. Today this support is been transformed into a unique scholarship program that allows the youth themselves to shape their own futures with a hand up not a hand out.
