The Youth Enterprise Hub builds 21st century entrepreneurial capabilities in all young people in Melbourne's inner north.
Become a Volunteer Mentor
We are seeking entrepreneurial mentors from the community to work in collaboration with schools, teachers and students to support The New Economy Enterprise Course (VCAL) in 2021.
This VCAL program will entail an on-site 2-hour commitment per week with small groups of students for 5 months from July to mid-November 2021. As a mentor within the Hub, you will be guiding 16-18 year-olds during their class time to support and develop their micro-enterprise.
In Semester 1, the students would have completed an action research process into community issues and in Semester 2, their micro-enterprise will seek to address a specific issue they identify.
Local entrepreneurs or business leaders will share their knowledge and expertise, receive training and on-going support to collaborate with a local school within the City of Yarra, Darebin and Moreland.
Join us in building new futures for young people of the inner north.

Listen to What Students Have To Say
Listen to What Social Enterprises Have To Say
The future of work requires deeper self knowledge and social awareness combined with creativity, project management and communication skills. YEH provides a platform for teachers and young people to create a real world curriculum in collaboration with social entrepreneurs and local councils across the Cities of Yarra, Darebin and Moreland to deal with the challenges of tomorrow.
We would like to gratefully acknowledge Raffaela Galati-Brown, Principal at Northern College of Arts and Technology, and Marcus Newman, VET Creative and Digital Media Trainer, NCAT and NCAT students for their dedicated filming and photography of YEH’s work.
