Our Mission

Engage, equip and recognise young people

Our mission is to positively enhance the development of young Victorian’s by engaging them in a program of self discovery and learning that enhances their opportunities and exposes them to experiences they might not otherwise had. With a strategic focus on disadvantaged and marginalized youth we aim to ensure that all Young Victorian’s have access to The Compass Award and it’s benefits, regardless of background or circumstance.
