Youth Projects

Interact Club

Woden Daybreak sponsored the establishment of the Canberra College Interact Club in August 2015, with members from 16 to 18 years.  The Interactors have already raised money to assist Syrian refugees and cancer research. They organsied Canberra's first ever TEDx Youth event and are now supporting an Interact trip to a remote village in Bali later in 2017 through movie nights. Check the Interactors out here.

Rotary Youth Exchange

Since its inception, Woden Daybreak has actively hosted and sponsored youth exchange students.  We have just waved off our German student and are looking forward to welcoming home another student from the Netherlands.  If you are between 15 and 18 and would like to live in another country for up to a year, we would like to hear from you!  More information is at Youth Exchange.

National Youth Science Forum

This is one of the most enjoyable events on our calendar.  We look forward each January to meeting and home-hosting for a day some of Australia's brightest year 11 science students.   Click here to read about it.
