Activate is a one-year, life-changing experience for young adults aged 18-28 years old that combines fun and friendship with biblical studies and life skills — all within the vibrant college community of Trinity College Queensland.
Each cohort of Activate students has the opportunity to undertake new experiences, grow and change personally, and build genuine relationships with fellow Christians from diverse Christian backgrounds.
An Activate year isn’t a gap filler. It’s a year of intention where young people set aside time and space to set their life and faith in motion.

How to Apply
- Application Form
First thing to do is to complete the Activate Application Form here. No worries if you are under 18 at time of application, as long as you are turning 18 in the year of the program (If so, we will need your guardian/parent consent). You will then get an email confirming that we have received your application and to organise a time for your interview.
The next step involves something exciting and very important: we would love to get to know you better, introduce ourselves, and answer any questions you may have about Activate and everything involved in being part of this community. We can arrange a suitable time to meet you through two options:
a. In person: If you live near Brisbane, we would be delighted to welcome you to the campus.
b. Online. If you can’t attend in person, we’ll ‘come to you’ via zoom.
The interview is more of a chat. We will have a relaxed and cozy approach. Don’t worry!
Finally, you will receive a phone call and email to let you what your next steps are in the application process.
Please note that you will need to make a small non-refundable deposit to secure your spot. But, of course, the amount will be taken from the overall cost.
