The Bridges Program works collaboratively with schools, parents, and young people and the community towards improving educational achievements and overall outcomes for children and young people as well as creating positive educational experiences for other family members. The program is designed to enhance the capacity of parents/caregivers of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children to engage with schools and education providers and improve educational outcomes for their children.
Bridges staff aim to increase and maintain attendance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people at school and other learning environments with the objective to support them to achieve successful educational outcomes.
Staff provide group activities and one-to-one support for children, young people and their carers/parents. Supporting our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, young people and their families is paramount to bridge the educational gap. We aim to increase and maintain attendance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people at school and other learning environments.
Our support ranges across the early years, primary, secondary, tertiary and vocational education communities. The program works with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders, grandparents, single parents, carers, students and their family members.
