What is Breakaway?

Breakaway is a unique youth support program that is based in Melbourne Victoria serving the Banyule, Darebin and Whittlesea regions. We use Adventure and under-canvas camping to spend time and connect with disadvantaged young people.

Our Aim is to provide a program of outdoor recreation for disadvantaged young people, primarily 10-16 year olds, for the purpose of improving their lifestyle by providing alternatives, which will give them a sense of achievement and self-esteem.

Our Programs

Breakaway’s program is for young people ages 10-16 from the Darebin, Banyule and Whittlesea areas. Each month the group will go away on an overnight camp, usually at Breakaway’s property Glendale in Taggerty.

Get Involved

Breakaway Youth is run by a diverse group of both paid and volunteer positions. We are always looking for new and exciting people to help journey with us.

Policies and Guidelines

Breakaway Youth has always kept ease of access to information a priority to foster a community strength. On our site you will find documentation including newsletters, application forms as well as Policies and Procedures.

Supporters/Organisations

Being a Not for Profit Organisation, Breakaway Youth has a number of groups that they both cooperate with and also get support from.

Media

Breakaway Youth aims to give Youth from all walks a hope for a better life and to enjoy all kinds of activities.
