ARE WE LOSING A GENERATION OF OUR YOUNG PEOPLE?
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!

The Beacon Foundation

The Beacon Foundation, established in 1988 in Tasmania, has grown to become a national not for profit organisation, operating in all Australian states and territories.

We believe every young person has the right to hope, a job, financial opportunity and the sense of personal success this provides them. Beacon focuses on disadvantaged communities and areas of high youth disengagement and unemployment, where the risk and the need are greatest. We work with schools, businesses and communities to help bring relevance to the curriculum, and inspire young people to think about careers and experience the workplace, long before they leave school. This helps school retention rates and teaches real-life skills, preparing them for the workplace.

Beacon will assist over 15,000 young Australians from just over 120 schools and communities in 2016.
