Bridge Builders is a non profit youth organisation based in Lilydale, delivering youth services to the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and around the State. As a charity, we don’t receive any government funding for the youth services that we provide and we rely solely on Business Partnership, events and our dedicated volunteers to be able to provide the life changing work we do in the community. We aim to influence and grow the lives of young people, and we use events and business enterprise as a way of engaging and developing young people. Youth engagement and development are two of the most important elements of what we do. We recognise that using specialised programs and youth run events are the most effective way of engaging young people.
