In 2023 the Social Justice Advocates established a Youth Initiatives Group. The overall goal is to ensure the sustainability of the SJA and other Not For Profit organisations operating in the Bega Valley, by encouraging young people to participate in projects that benefit our community…… to ensure that young people have  opportunities to  participate in SJA activities and are provided with support to do so. The Youth Group operates as a fully independent  group, albeit mentored and coached by seasoned SJA campaigners. 

The Youth Initiative Group’s primary focus  is on environmental issues and the  long term sustainability of Not For Profit community organisations in the Bega Valley.
