Who We Are
We are here not for income, but for outcome
Blue Light Victoria is an independent, for-purpose organisation for youth. The aim of Blue Light is to empower youth to reach their full potential regardless of the adversity they may face.
Established in 1976, Blue Light Victoria in partnership with Victoria Police has 42 branches across Victoria. Every year over 30,000 young people will attend a Blue Light event in metropolitan or rural Victoria.
Our program has developed into a crime prevention initiative, which aims primarily to identify and address the needs of young people who are ‘at risk’ and also provide education, crime reduction, life skills, cultural, social and sporting programs for young people aged between 5 and 18 years with a focus on but not restricted to youth at risk, indigineous, migrant and victims of crime.
Our events are tailored to meet the needs of each local community. Each Blue Light branch runs as an independent incorporation and consists of a committee made up of Victoria Police members and local community members. Programs will be developed to align with the Victoria Police Youth Strategy and to also address local youth demands and issues.
Growing up is a challenge and the transition to adulthood can be a difficult one for many young people. Blue Light provides positive opportunities for young people to engage with each other, with police and with the community.
