Strengthening Family Resilience

We are Younger Heroes

Younger Heroes is an experience-based Australian charity focused on helping parents with high risk, high stress and time-intensive occupations to reconnect with their children. The Younger Heroes camps and programs provide parents and children with the tools to share, communicate and rediscover their connection, strengthening bonds and laying a framework for building resilience amongst families with risk and stress-intensive parental occupations.

The Younger Heroes is a not-for-profit, registered charity with full DGR (deductible gift recipient) status. It is a family relationship focused program, supporting participants (parents and children) who may have experienced time away from their families as a result of their employment.

The Younger Heroes program is a COVID-19 safe registered business.

I am not sure how you do it, but you managed to do and get out of people something I can't explain.  People have to experience this for themselves.

This program (TYH) is a great tool to connect back with each other. Its approach is utterly unique and for this they need to be congratulated.
