Learn more about youthHQ?

YouthHQ is a portal for information relating to Defence youth matters.

This initiative was prompted in part by feedback from youth, education professionals, parents and carers and recognises the need for a single point of reference from which information about the individual Defence youth programs can be easily accessed.

This site was developed in collaboration and consultation with members of the Defence Youth Network
