Highway inspires you to connect to yourself, others and the world around you. We believe by doing this, you will have a strong sense of who you are. When you have self-belief, you can feel empowered to take the right steps to move forward and live the best life possible. Highway's mission is to promote good mental health and wellbeing by helping young people feel connected and supported in their life journey. This way we can help reduce loneliness which is a considerable risk factor for mental illness. Simply put, we exist so young people can feel a deep sense of belonging and be inspired to become the person they want to be.
Highway Foundation welcomes everyone from all ethnicities, gender and backgrounds. We are an all-inclusive non-denominational charity with no religious affiliations.
The Highway Journey
A Highway Journey is made of four 90 minute weekly sessions online. Here you get to journey with other young people who are of the same age and a Highway Youth Facilitator. Together you will journey and explore who you want to be, what you want to do and feel empowered to do that.
"I was lost. I have family and friends but they just don't get me. I was just pretending so I could fit in. Thank you, Highway for helping me to understand who I am and finding my own voice."
Helen, 17 years
"I just didn't know what to do. I'm was at uni but I didn't even know if I liked what I was studying. I constantly felt overwhelmed by the thought of making a mistake in my life. Highway and the people I met during the sessions really helped me see what I liked to do and the confidence to do it!
Eddy, 22 years
" It was eye-opening what I found out about myself. I became aware of things I did not realise were holding me back. There is so much support in the group. I wish I knew about Highway when I was a teen. I always feel so empowered after a session.
Harrison, 24 years
"It's been a long time since I have been in a relationship and I often feel like I'm just not enough and that is why I don't have someone in my life. Being in a Highway session made me realise that I am enough!
Prue, 19 years
I love how I can just be myself and unpack what is going on in my life. It really is a centring space. Guys don't really get to talk about things that are important. At Highway, it just feels so natural. This is what young people need today.
Darren, 21 years
"At school, I'm pretty shy so it's sometimes hard to make friends. Its nice to have a circle of other kids to talk to and realise I am not alone.
