About Us

The Youth Humanitarian Festival (YHF) was initiated in 2014 by Swinburne Alumna  Liz Rodriguez.

YHF  is run by students and it is  designed to engage, empower and inspire people to make positive social change.

YHF aims to bring together like-minded people like you to expand your understanding on the social and humanitarian issues. Whilst empowering and engaging you to create a sustainable change for a better future. Inspiring speakers, entertaining workshops and stalls to intensify the event.

We donate all the proceeds to social impact organisations. Our aim is to encourage positive change in our community and drive young people to achieve this change.
