Beacon Foundation is a national not-for-profit organisation based in Hobart. Beacon have been working with schools, businesses and communities for over 35 years to bring real world relevance to education and to inspire young people to think about careers and to experience the workplace, long before leaving school.
We deliver programs Australia-wide, for students in Years 7-12, more specifically targeting students in Years 9-12, in schools with an ICSEA* of less than 1,000. We believe socio-economic background or geography should not determine the education or career opportunities you have in life.
*ICSEA (Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage) provides an indication of the socio-educational backgrounds of students
