Sponsorship and nominations are sought annually for the Upper Hunter Shire Young Endeavour Scheme. Businesses and community groups are urged to contribute toward the cost of berths for six lucky young people from the Upper Hunter to participate in the Young Endeavour Program.
Young people, aged 16 to 23, can be nominated by sponsors, schools, community and sporting groups for this adventure of a lifetime on a tall ship.
The Young Endeavour Youth Scheme aims to provide young Australians with a unique, challenging and inspirational experience that increases their self-awareness, develops their teamwork and leadership skills and creates a strong sense of community responsibility.
