We have just launched our Highway Journey program. Join our Focus Group Sessions, give us your feedback and in return we will give you a $30 online gift voucher. Your feedback will help so many other young people just like you!
What happens and how do I join?
Highway Foundation is all about helping young people find their way in life.
We are about to launch our program in November 2021 for young people and would like to test our program. We are here to help young people uncover who they are, where they want to go and who they want to be. Our Highway Journey Program enables young people to connect with other young people across Australia, in an online, safe, no pressure environment. Our incredible Accredited Highway Youth Facilitators understand what it means to be a young person today.
We are not an emergency service, so we don't provide crisis support. Instead, we work with everyday young people, help them with whatever they are facing, and walk alongside them as they move forward with their life. We help you uncover what is important to you and inspire you to take action.
We look forward to helping you make sense of your life and embrace the uncertainty of the world. Through our program, sharing of life experiences and your personal Highway Dashboard - a Highway Journey promises to be nothing less than a transformational experience!

Young people helping other young people
We can only provide this Highway Journey Program because of our amazing our sponsors and volunteers. We believe all young people should have access to our amazing program.
It's all about young people helping other young people. We hope you have a great experience with us. You might be inspired to become a Highway Youth Facilitator yourself, share your story and let other people know about our work.
Once you register, we will contact you and place you into the next available group.
Once you register, you'll receive a confirmation email with your group details and the Zoom session link. Your privacy is important to us, so you'll only need to show your first name in the Zoom room.
A Highway Group is made up of 4-8 young people who are around the same age as you. We have the Adolescents Group (14-17 years) and the Young Adults Group (18-25 years). We will allocate you to the perfect group, don't worry!
What happens in a Highway Group?
You will join us online once a week for a Highway Session over four weeks. Your journey with us with consist of 4 weekly sessions lasting 60-90 minutes. Session #1 "Getting to Know Each Other" runs a bit longer than the remaining sessions. We ensure each session is a safe, confidential and a private space.
You are committing to join us for 60-90 minutes once a week for 4 weeks. In each session, Your Highway Youth Facilitator will guide you, and your group, to understand who you are and explore what is important to you. Through sharing your own stories and listening to the stories of others - you will connect and find inspiration for your life. You can create goals and be supported by the other group members. In addition, you will also have access to your own private Highway Dashboard. The Highway Dashboard helps you to reflect on your journey, what you are thinking and how you feel about your decisions.
At the end of Highway Journey, we believe you will have a greater sense of who you are and what you want to do. Sound good?
Meet our amazing Highway Youth Facilitators
Your Highway Session is always facilitated by a Highway Youth Facilitator. A Highway Youth Facilitator is aged between 18-25 years and they have a gift when it comes to helping young people find their way in life.
They do NOT give advice, coach, mentor or counsel. Instead they listen and hold a safe, non-judgemental space. This space is for you to explore what is important to you and to help you find the path that feels is right for you. We believe you have all the answers. We just help you work that out for yourself. As you listen to your own story and other people's stories, you will have a better sense of what is right for you.
Highway Youth Facilitators have been specially chosen for their gift of listening. They have also gone through intensive training and have been accredited with the following:
* Highway Foundation Accreditation (3months) * Mental Health First Aid for Youth * Working with Children's Check * Police Check * Emergency Protocols Training * Child Safe Protocols Training
