The Federal Government’s cessation of Youth Connections funding means nine disadvantaged students studying at Rosemount’s alternative education program will lose their opportunity to complete the HSC.
The cessation of Youth Connections funding means the government is removing the program which has enabled the re-engagement of disengaged youth and supported individual students to work towards achieving their education goals while being given access to counselling, mentors and other essential support services.
Rosemount Good Shepherd is committed to the belief that education is the most definitive way for a young person to escape the entrapment of disadvantage.
We are currently seeking assistance to raise funds to assist these nine young women to complete their schooling with us. Two of these students have worked with Rosemount Good Shepherd for 5 years and will be 6 months away from achieving their HSC when funding will cease.
This would be a tremendous injustice to students who have overcome incredible hurdles to achieve their education.
To offer this life changing educational opportunity, we need to raise $65,000 per year for two years.
Can you help us help our girls achieve their HSC?
All donations over $2 are tax deductible in Australia. Any contribution you can make will be gratefully received.
COMING SOON: watch this website – our students want to introduce themselves and boy have they got something to say!
