Operation Flinders Foundation Inc.
Operation Flinders aims to transform young people’s lives through their participation in our world leading evidence based outback intervention program. The program provides young men and women who have been identified as being ‘at-risk’, with demanding outdoor challenges and ongoing support, to help them develop their personal values of self-esteem, motivation, leadership, teamwork and responsibility, so they may grow as valued members of the community.
The program is an intense physical, emotional and psychological challenge which gives participants the chance to expand their view of the world to a point where they ‘see’ other people virtually for the first time and they realise the world has far to offer them than they ever thought. Operation Flinders provides a window through which to see what might be possible for these young people, and can be the key to opening up their imagination.
In excess of 8000 young people have participated since the programs’ inception in 1991.
