The Youth Mentor Conference is curated and hosted by Shine From Within. Founded in 2012 on Gubbi Gubbi Country (Sunshine Coast) QLD Australia, Shine From Within is now a global leader in supporting the people who support youth and are on a mission to ensure every young person has a mentor.

Their award-winning Youth Mentor Training has trained mentors in over 20 countries, seeing women, men and non-binary folks building community programs, thriving businesses, successful school workshops and curriculums, holiday camps and one-on-one mentoring services for the youth in their communities. We believe wholeheartedly that there can never be too many people dedicated to supporting the next generation – let’s do it together! 

This is our inaugural conference and we cannot wait to connect with you, share ideas and rally together to support the next generation. 

The Youth Mentor Conference is powered by Shine From Within, supporting teens and the adults around them since 2012. Shine From Within, and this conference, will be hosted (virtually) from the lands of the Gubbi Gubbi people. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded. This always was, and always will be Aboriginal land. 

Shine from Within welcomes students of all social, cultural, community and family backgrounds, and of all identities, and all abilities. Shine from Within is LGBTQIA+ friendly. Read our complete commitment to our social and environmental impact here.
