Beacon, a national non-profit organisation working in more than 110 secondary schools across all Australian states and territories, believes every young Australian can develop an independent will to achieve personal success for themselves and their community.
Beacon has an established track record of helping inspire and motivate students to either stay in school and increase their educational engagement and attainment or choose a positive pathway that enables successful transition to employment, further education or training.
The Beacon Model supports young people to develop a positive pathway focus through engaging and influencing the attitudes and behaviour of the broader community. By harnessing community involvement, it works within schools to ensure young people are either earning or learning at vulnerable transition points in their lives.
In Melbourne's west, Beacon has worked with staff and students at St Albans Secondary College, Sunshine College, and Victoria University Secondary College.
