ARE WE LOSING A GENERATION OF OUR YOUNG PEOPLE?
We know that not completing Year 12 and not achieving well in school are predictors of later outcomes and that young people who are not fully engaged in education or employment (or a combination of both) are at greater risk of unemployment and employment insecurity in the longer term. Shockingly in Australia today 40% of young Australians in disadvantaged areas are not completing high school and nearly 30% of young Australians are unemployed or underemployed.
Beacon has the solution, but we need your help.
Beacon Foundation has a practical approach to address this situation, working with over 100 school communities across Australia. It’s a supported community-led approach to collaborative education involving business, parents and schools supporting the education of our young people, helping them to be either earning or learning at this vulnerable transition point in their lives.
In this end of Financial Year Appeal we are asking for YOUR help to develop our new eBeacon initiative that will allow us to expand our reach to THOUSANDS MORE young Australian across the country, blending our on-the-ground work with a revolutionary digital platform.
Beacon has DGR charity status so all tax deductions over $2 are tax deductable.
Together we can achieve real results to help change the future for a generation of young Australians across the country.
Thank you for your support.
