Education & Employment Impact Stories
Enhancing Job Services for Older People
The Foundation is committed to addressing discrimination and helping people find and maintain employment at any stage of their working life. Despite their wealth of experience and their well reported
desire to work, older men and women face significant disadvantage when seeking employment.
Community Bike Hubs
A grant by the Foundatino to support Community Bike Hubs, an innovative social franchise of bicycle repair workshops run by Good Cycles, has increased the organisation's financial mobility and enabled it to expland its training programs and job opportunities for at-risk youth.
River Nile Learning Centre
A grant of $86,500 over two years has enabled River Nile to continue providing free childcare, which enables young mothers from predominantly African and Middle Eastern refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds to further their education.
Ardoch Youth Foundation
In 2013, the Foundation made a $40,000 grant to the volunteer program at Ardoch Youth Foundation, an organisation that provides education and support to children and young people from disadvantaged communities.
Centre for Multicultural Youth
Pathway to Opportunity, a program by Centre for Multicultural Youth (CMY) will create 60 new traineeships and apprenticeships over two years for young people aged 16–25 from African and Pasifika backgrounds, who have a school-leavers certificate but aren’t engaged in further training or employment.
Seed Challenge Grant Recipients Announced
Three charitable organisations have been announced as successful grant recipients from the Seed Challenge to transform employment and training opportunities for young Victorians with disability.
