How VICTA can help if you’re
aged 18 to 29 years

VICTA organises activities for young adults aged 18 to 29 years designed to improve emotional, social, living and employability skills. You can take part in a range of  experiences which are both fun and meaningful, from residential activity breaks to international cultural adventures. We are here to help you with your transition into higher education, the workplace and your community.
