Empowering Young People


Youthworx is a youth media social enterprise that trains and employs young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness in creative and commercial media production.  We believe that creativity is to the spirit what food and shelter is to the body and that as much as we need a roof over our head and food on the table we also need to be creatively and purposefully engaged. Our core goal is to support youth who are ‘at risk’ of homelessness. We do this by providing appropriate training options and dignified workplace opportunities. 



Accredited Training & Workshops

In partnership with Melbourne Polytechnic, we run supported accredited training, in Creative Industries, for ‘at risk’ young people. We also host skill based workshops for organisations and independent groups who want to develop their media skills.

Professional Production Services

We believe in the power of story and image to shape a better world. We craft beautiful films and photos that bring to life the stories within our communities . We offer a variety of services that can help you communicate your organisation’s story, character, event or mission with a wide audience
