The We Know Your Name But Not Your Story digital storytelling initiative, originally developed by Corangamite Council, will be implemented by Indigo Council.
Indigo Shire received $75,000 to run the project through a VicHealth grants round.
"We're pleased to receive this funding from VicHealth's Bright Futures Challenge, which will help young people in Indigo Shire develop new skills and build social connections," mayor Bernard Gaffney said.
Acting VicHealth chief executive Lyn Roberts said it was a "great example of local councils working together to support young people".
"We Know Your Name But Not Your Story has shown strong promise as a vehicle for local councils to improve health and well-being of vulnerable young people," Dr Roberts said.
