Accredited Training

In partnership with Melbourne Polytechnic we offer Certificate II and III accredited training in Creative Industries targeted at young people (15-25yrs) who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. We provide a wraparound model where a Youth Worker and Industry Professional work alongside the Teacher to provide layered support that is designed to provide the best possible opportunity for young people to tap into their own inherent creative potential.

Youthworx is setup as an adult learning environment, it’s all about ‘learning, doing and making’. Students have creative control over writing and producing documentary, short films and radio shows. The curriculum is focused on film production, radio broadcasting and media industry knowledge. All students participate in presenting a weekly radio show for SYN 90.7 FM. As well as radio, students work on individual and group film and documentary projects gaining hands on experience of media creation. All courses are classified as fulltime and fees are subsidized providing the young person is eligible.

Youthworx students also get the opportunity to work on paid projects within the business arm Youthworx Productions and the possibility of going onto part time employment.

Some of the core areas covered in the courses are:

Camera use and cinematography


Live Radio broadcasting


Creative thinking

Industry context


Workplace effectiveness

We run a range of workshops designed to inspire a love for the creative possibilities of film and radio production. We offer one off open access workshops for relevant groups who work with ‘at risk’ young people as well as tailored fee for service participatory projects.

Production Services

Since 2009, we have offered professional film production services and have produced over 400 commissioned films through our business arm Youthworx Productions while employing highly marginalized young people who have come through our training programs in core creative and technical roles. We also now offer photographic services alongside our film work and are extremely passionate about telling stories through both still and moving image.

Since our inception we have had the opportunity to work on an extraordinary portfolio of projects from telling social impact stories to making music videos to documenting events and producing campaigns. We have worked across sectors including community, government, corporate and commercial and have built a wonderfully diverse client base.
