At BBM Youth Support we believe that successful young people create more opportunities for themselves and others, building a better future for Australia.
So we target young people aged 16-23 from all walks of life to support their learning and development. We offer them unique and valuable learning opportunities which change their lives and strengthen their communities. We create life-long opportunities for them to give back.
Our international award is designed to support young people to professional development through exposure to specialist skills which may not be available in Australia, and to widen their networks to help them excel in their chosen field. On their return awardees are encouraged to share these skills. Past awardees are enriching communities as role models, mentors, teachers and employers, amplifying their effect in their professions and their communities.
An award is valued at $8,000 comprising airfares and a cash component to cover all other expenses including accommodation and living costs. The award is focused on talented young people with an interest in development opportunities in the UK, however we encourage awardees to travel widely whilst overseas.
We use a selection panel of judges relevant to the category
