Community Initiatives

Youth Foundation

Youth Foundation Boronia is financially supported by the HLGM Financial Services (Bayswater) Pty Ltd, HLGM Financial Services (Boronia) Pty Ltd and HLGM Financial Services Pty Ltd. These companies are represented by Boronia, Bayswater and Ringwood branches of Bendigo Bank.

Collectively, our aim is to help local young people make real differences in our local communities. We look to increase the amount of opportunities available for them to become actively involved.

Providing young people with opportunities to show leadership and initiative encourages them to think about the needs of youth in our area.

This is achieved by providing funding for youth-led, and focused, philanthropic activities. Growing connections for young people within our local community is key.

Our guiding principals

  • To develop and manage funds to support youth philanthropy;
  • To develop resources to support the adoption and delivery of youth philanthropic activities;
  • To develop young people’s leadership, planning and management skills, and decision making roles in our community;
  • To support local youth-led/youth-based strengthening projects;
  • To promote youth and assist communities to view young people in a more positive light;
  • To reduce barriers for participation;
  • Engage a diverse group of youth in opportunities which embrace connections with our community.

If you are a young person who resides, works or plays in the Boronia, Bayswater or Ringwood communities and has a project idea, please contact:
