BackTrack provides disadvantaged youth in regional communities the support, life skills and experience to pursue positive life pathways.

BackTrack is a non-profit, educational and life skills initiative for disadvantaged young people aged 11-19 years old from rural and remote communities who are simply, having a hard time. The program gives vulnerable young people the practical and emotional support needed to stabilise their lives, helping develop self-esteem and skills for work. Almost 9 in 10 young people supported by BackTrack move into work, education or training. To date, BackTrack’s has worked with more than 1000 young people and generated impact within the local Armidale community in NSW.

SVA is looking to support BackTrack in strengthening its impact, growing its evidence base and impart learnings and methodology to youth workers and community groups in rural and regional Australia.
