LEAP Helps Young People With HSC!

September 18, 2017
Youth Off The Streets

26 disadvantaged young people (16-18 years old) have been given the opportunity to chase their dreams this year as recipients of the 2017 LEAP Awards. The Department of Family and Community Services and Youth Off The Streets have partnered to provide these young people with the help they need to achieve their dreams and educational goals.

The LEAP (Local Educational Assistance Program) is built on a partnership network of corporate and community leaders working together to provide a whole-of-community response to support disadvantaged young people currently doing their HSC. The LEAP draws on the generosity of local businesses, trainers, educators and employment leaders by tapping into the skills, expertise and resource capacity around us, with the belief that collectively, we can make a big impact.

A number of Youth Off The Streets young people were involved in the LEAP imitative this year and have worked hard to achieve their education goals. At Youth Off The Streets we believe that education is the key to breaking the cycle of disadvantage, and we are proud of how our young people have succeeded in this initiative

The LEAP program wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of the LEAP Partnership Network. We’d like to thank the following:
