Young People for Development Australia was officially founded in 2008 when we hosted the Green World Youth Day program in partnership with Holy Eucharist Catholic parish, St Albans, Victoria University, and others.

Sixty-five young people from across Asia joined us for the program which took place in Melbourne, Bendigo, Canberra and Sydney. It was a memorable experience for all.

Later, YPD Australia organised fundraising activities to support local development activities in Indonesia.

It also sponsored two young people from Melbourne to take participate in the YPD2014 program in Malaysia.

YPD Australia is registered as an incorporated association under Australian law.
