Our Story

In 1972, Doxa was formed on the single principle that all children, regardless of their backgrounds, deserved to have positive experiences outside the confines of their socio-economic standing. This principle of access and equality continues today. We provide a range of programs so that all young people can access positive life experiences, education opportunities and employment pathways.

Doxa supports young people experiencing disadvantage, aged eight through to 22 years. We are one of but a few Victorian not-for-profits to offer programming from primary school years, throughout secondary Years 7 – 12, and tertiary education. This comprehensive model means that our programs offer opportunity, aspiration and support across key developmental and life cycle stages of a young person.

Our aim across all programs is to ensure that all young people, no matter their circumstance, have the opportunity to achieve personal greatness. And our uniqueness lies in the focused journeys we undertake with young people – journeys marked from the beginning with care, integrity, commitment and the pursuit of greatness.


Our vision is that all young people have the opportunity to achieve.


We share knowledge, skills and experiences with disadvantaged young people, empowering them to realise their potential.
