A nation’s most valuable resource is its young people. Young people represent our nation’s future and embody national prosperity. All young people require equal access to educational achievement that befits their innate ability no matter if they are from urban, rural or remote communities, no matter if they are from low socioeconomic backgrounds, indigenous, homeless, a refugee, in the juvenile justice system, a young parent or in the care of the state. We will not only be measured by our response to these complex equity issues but will create a future educational landscape that is grounded in equality, justice and liberation.
Edmund Rice Education Australia Youth+ Foundation Ltd is responding to the signs of the times by embracing the legacy of compassion, liberation and presence, gifted to us from the founder, Blessed Edmund Rice. This gift allows our work as guests in the lives of the young people and families/carers we serve.
