Our Work


The Hank Young Foundation is committed to providing guidance and financial support to projects associated with the education and welfare of Australia's Indigenous people.

Assistance for Indigenous projects is available Australia wide and ranges from short to long term and individual to community based support.

In 1989, The Hank Young Foundation established Rivermount College at Yatala, Queensland. Rivermount College is a co-educational, non-denominational Christian College for students from Prep to Year 12. The mission of the College is to build bridges between the Indigenous and non-Indigenous people of Australia. Since its inception, Rivermount College has provided Aboriginal students with the opportunity to complete their Primary and Secondary education through scholarships funded by The Hank Young Foundation.

The Hank Young Foundation has also been instrumental in the establishment of Shalom College in Townsville and more recently Radiant Life College in Innisfail, North Queensland.
