Shape the future of young people

Shape the future of young people in Australia  

Inspiring  the Future Australia aims to broaden the horizons and raise the aspirations of all young people, from primary school students to tertiary students.

95% of young people say they want employers to be more involved in providing advice and guidance about careers, so we're on a mission to help make those connections.

Do you want to make a difference in the lives of young people?

What Teachers say....


“Inspiring the Future is a genius concept and resource.... I also used your sample questions which were a great help to the students because they are only 14 and unsure of what to say. It was also excellent for developing Soft Skills such as speaking to strangers in a professional manner which helped boost their confidence.”

Teacher who hosted Career Speed Networking.


“Listening to employers talk about their job role to help young people understand the world of work is crucial”

Teacher who hosted a series of Career Insights talks from volunteers.


“Inspiring the Future provided strong messages from adults other than their teachers or parents. It gave our young people ideas about different careers”

Teacher who did a Year 10 Enrichment Day.


“Students have gained hugely in confidence as a result of this event and the input by the Inspiring the Future volunteers”

Teacher who used volunteers to conduct Mock Interviews.


“The children's horizons were broadened and they learned more about what an engineer does. This is what we wanted to achieve - to make children more aware of the types of jobs that are out there and available to them”

Teacher who did a STEM themed week of activities.


“Children had the opportunity to experience the world of work, talk to real people and engage in an exciting, accessible way. This is a fantastic resource and I have recommended it to my colleagues”
