Links to Learning Community Grants Program is a targeted program implemented by the NSW Department of Education and Communities to improve outcomes for at risk young people, and help them effectively transition back into education.
Links to Service is delivered to Year 9 students, who are provided with learning opportunities and support services to help them remain in, or re-engage with their education, and to build respectful and ethical relationships. Workshops focus on developing community awareness, community connectedness, life skills, confidence, self-awareness, and a healthy mind and body.
GO (Girls Only) Learning is delivered to female Year 9 students. The program is designed to help girls understand their potential and strengthen their engagement with mainstream education. We address the common issues leading to disengagement with education through improving healthy decision-making and building skills and awareness around gender, wellness and the issues young women identify as relevant to them.
