About us

For 23 years Youth Connect has delivered programs and services with and for young people.  In 2016 Youth Connect merged with Whitelion as part of the Stride Program.

Whitelion aims to increase social connection and inclusion in local communities, building meaningful relationships and creating opportunities that enable highly vulnerable young people to reach their full potential. Whitelion programs have been integral to young people at risk. Without our services, these young people are those that ‘fall through the cracks’ of mainstream services.

Whitelion: Stride Programs provide young people with essential life skills for now and into the future through workshops focused on relationship, resilience, career transitions and school engagement. 

To support Whitelion to achieve its mission, we deliver the annual Youth Conference – DARE2B.
