Who are we?
Education is key for a successful, healthy life. Clontarf is needed now more than ever to help these young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men succeed.
Gerard Neesham, Clontarf Foundation CEO
The Clontarf Foundation aims to improve education, discipline, self-esteem, life skills and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men to enable them to participate more meaningfully in society. It works to increase school engagement and attendance, create a sense of belonging and, ultimately, increase Year 12 completion rates and support them to gain employment.
What are we doing?
How do we increase educational attainment for young Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander men and close the employment & health gap with non-Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander men?
Clontarf Foundation - Scaling Academies
Using supportive relationships, a welcoming environment & diverse activities, young Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander men develop improved self-esteem and confidence and learn new life skills which assists them to participate in education, employment and society.
