2022 Annual Report
Our latest Annual Report is now available if you want to check out everything we have been up to through 2021/2022. As the world recovers slowly from the impact of Covid-19 we have been challenged to deliver programs that impact for the future and excited to see plans coming back to life from before the pandemic. The young people we work with continue to inspire us and encourage us to keep striving to expand the reach of the programs to impact more youth across the globe.
A FEW OF OUR WINS
- The return of programs and court infrastructure projects to Central Australia and First Nations communities after the Covid-19 restricted access.
- The launch of the Bounce Podcast now entering Season 2 with some incredible guests such as Basketball Hall of Fame Coach Tara VanDerveer, International Rugby player Eloni Vunakec, and NBA Champion Andrew Bogut.
- Training of Stand Tall Youth Coaches both in Australia and Internationally through our employment pathways programs for new program activations in Australia, Africa, and the United States.
- Increased volunteer engagement with more than 1200 hours of volunteer support across our program and organisational needs.
We continue to focus on the next stage of our growth with plans in 2023 to solidify our coaches and program delivery in new regions through the launch of our mentoring focussed Breakfast Clubs. As an organisation we have a clear vision for delivering mentor focused initiatives across Australia and internationally.
At Bounce, we are focussed on developing best practice systems and strategies as we expand to deliver social impact programs that will have a reach well beyond the next 12 months. We want to thank all the young people, volunteers, and Bounce team that are so committed to making a real difference, along with the incredible partners, funders, and donors for their support in making this possible.
As always we are full of hope about what lies ahead and thankful for the group of passionate people who want to change the world with us.

About Charity Bounce
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 participants.
We have a 100% public donation model where private donors cover 100% of the management and administration expenses of Charity Bounce. These private donors invest into our long-term mission, our ability to scale as an organisation, and our commitment to using 100% of public donations for direct program delivery. You can donate and join the Starting 5 Network for around $5 a week.
