About

Charity Bounce is a not for profit organisation that exists to build resiliency and positive job futures for young people at -risk (12-24), using innovation through basketball to create ‘out of reach’ opportunities that inspire and motivate change. With a focus on Indigenous and culturally diverse communities, including newly arrived refugees, we aim to move young people toward a more positive future through the development of sports, education and employment focused social programs. The programs are delivered in partnership with sporting organisations, engaging professional athletes alongside our youth workers to motivate and inspire our participants.

Charity Bounce has demonstrated experience with a reputation as a not-for-profit leader in utilising sport to create meaningful social impact in the community. As a globally recognised and award-winning movement it is positioned as a premier Basketball Development Program in Australia and in winning the Global 2020 Beyond Sport Global Award is established as one of the Premier sporting development programs internationally, focussed on teaching the game of life outside the court as much as on it, developing disadvantaged youth including those from diverse cultural, refugee and indigenous backgrounds.
