Beacon Foundation is a national 'for purpose’ organisation that has operated for over 30 years. At Beacon Foundation we believe that young people are valued as citizens and vital members of our community.
We believe that all young people have the right to a bright future regardless of background or circumstance. In our experience, not every young person has the same level of opportunity. At Beacon Foundation, we work to move the dial for young Australians to help them make a successful transition into further education or meaningful employment.
Our connections between business and industry help us build collaboration with schools to create real world education experiences – experiences that bring work exposure and career awareness to young people.
We know that the world of work is changing – and changing fast. Bringing real life relevance to schools is critical. We build connections between industries and the wider community so that there are relevant and practical ways for young people to relate school to potential employment pathways.
We focus on communities that experience disadvantage as young people living in these communities will be more likely to be disengaged in school and experience higher levels of unemployment or underemployment.
Program donations fund:
Beacon seeks to offer job guidance and mentoring workshops to disadvantaged young people in Greater Sydney, assisting them to successfully transitioning from education to meaningful employment.
We bring business, schools and the wider community together to deliver real life education experiences to young people, which offers relevant and practical ways for them to relate school to potential employment pathways.
Beacon helps young people to plan for their future by preparing for this change before they leave the school gates.
Often young people from disadvantaged backgrounds lack the opportunity to understand and develop the skills that employers are seeking.
