About us

Youth Connect merged with Whitelion in 2016 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: 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.
