Who we are
We are a dynamic not-for-profit organisation that works with vulnerable young people and children. For 50 years we have been creating opportunities that support them to realise their potential. We emerged out of the work of Rev Dr John Smith, who also nurtured the growth of the God’s Squad Christian Motorcycle Club in the 1970s.
The future is looking bright as we celebrate our 50th year and leverage our fresh new brand identity.
We’re looking for the right people to help us build on this momentum, grow our organisation, and make a bigger difference in the lives of young people.
