Young Endeavour Youth Scheme


Sail Training Ship Young Endeavour is Australia's national sailing trip.  The ship was a gift to the Government and the people of Australia from the United Kingdom on the occasion of the Bicentenary in 1988.  The Young Endeavour Youth Scheme is a not-for-profit organisation which manages Young Endeavour on behalf of the Australian Government and the Royal Australian Navy to provide young Australians with a unique, challenging and inspirational experience at sea.  Each voyage comprises 11 days of sail training, youth development and community engagement activities.

Activities in Young Endeavour range from team building activities to lessons on navigation and sail theory. Where weather permits, Young Endeavour also seeks to host a local community organisation supporting youth with disabilities or special needs for a half day sail. This day is an important part of the youth development program, and offers local youth who may not be able to participate in an eleven day program an opportunity to sail in Young Endeavour.
