Guest Speaker: CEO of Youngcare, Anthony Ryan
Anthony joined the Youngcare team as Chief Executive Officer in November 2016, bringing with him a re-invigorated vision to lead the organisation into its next crucial phase. With Anthony at the helm, Youngcare actively pursues partnerships to amplify its goal of supporting the 700,000 young people currently living in, or at risk of entering aged care across Australia.
Prior to joining Youngcare, Anthony was Chief Executive Officer of the Edmund Rice Foundation for 4 years, and founding Director of the Mimiki Foundation which provided aid and support to marginalised youth in South-East Queensland and South Africa.
Anthony holds extensive experience across the not-for-profit, business, education and stockbroking sectors.
In 2009, Anthony was a recipient of a Queensland Great Award for his work establishing Eddie’s Street Van and Paddie’s Van assisting Brisbane’s homeless, street kids and elderly.
In May 2017, Anthony will be walking 250 kilometres across the Simpson Desert to raise vital funds and awareness for young people with high care needs.
