SWY Australia is a national, not-for-profit organisation. Our prime objective is to provide Australian youth with development opportunities to build their leadership skills, expand their global networks and improve their cultural competence so that they can create stronger local and global communities.

SWY Australia is eager to partner with other community groups and organisations to promote this innovative leadership and personal development opportunity to youth around Australia.  

SWY Australia also has a national network of alumni supporting community projects both in Australia and abroad. Projects that SWY Australia support include:

  • Kiva – SWY Australia support groups using this micro financing tool and have provided thousands of dollars in funds to projects around the world as part of their post-program activities. Previous projects include support for women’s empowerment and education projects. 

  • Partnership with local community groups including Rotary Australia, Lions Clubs of Australia and various local cultural societies who assist us to promote the SWY program to young people in their communities.

More information on post-program projects run by Australian SWY Alumni can be found at http://swy.international


​SWY has a long and proud history in Australia and we are committed to continuing this legacy for future Australian delegations. If your organisation believes in the power of youth and community development, international peace and cross-cultural understanding, we would love to hear from you. Any support, large all small, is welcomed.
