Fairbridge is a major youth charitable organisation whose mission is to provide opportunities for youth at risk or those disengaged from school to achieve sustainable employment.
Set on approximately 35 hectares of bush and surrounded by farmland, Fairbridge operates and maintains a nationally heritage-listed village providing accommodation, catering and activities to school and other community groups to support the maintenance of the village and its surroundings.
The Fairbridge model includes “Fairbridge College” an independent education facility that serves students 12 – 17 years, who have been unable to achieve success in a mainstream learning environment and Vocational Education Training to 17+ students, at risk of not completing school, unemployed or who have been involved in the justice system.
Focus is on the engagement of students in both educational facilities through a variety of alternative learning methods, with outcomes including a selection of certificate courses aligned to the needs of individuals and the community.
Success of the model focuses on inclusivity of both families and community to achieve desired outcomes and the provision of supported accommodation to ease homelessness.
How will the funds be used?
Funding will be used on maintenance of the village environment, which is seen as a valuable contributor to success for participants in learning, including offering “live” projects for students in Conservation and Land Management and Construction.
