What we do at Beacon

We are working to create an Australia that understands, cares and is motivated to support young people to successfully transition from education to meaningful employment. We build connections between industry, education and the community to create real world education in schools that is relevant and engaging for young people in the 21st century.

Our Vision

To reach, inspire and connect Australia’s future workforce.

Our Mission

To revolutionise school education.

Our History

The Beacon Foundation, established in 1988 in Tasmania, has grown to become a national not for profit organisation, operating in all Australian states and territories.

We believe every young person has the right to hope, a job, financial opportunity and the sense of personal success this provides them. Beacon focuses on disadvantaged communities and areas of high youth disengagement and unemployment, where the risk and the need are greatest. We work with schools, businesses and communities to help bring relevance to the curriculum, and inspire young people to think about careers and experience the workplace, long before they leave school. This helps school retention rates and teaches real-life skills, preparing them for the workplace.

Beacon will assist over 15,000 young Australians from just over 140 schools and communities in 2017.

MyRoad Career Story
Providing young people with advice and telling personal stories is part of what the #MyRoad program offers.

Finding out that every journey is different; that sometimes finding your passion takes time; that every job you do, no matter what it is, builds skills, experience and confidence.

MyRoad participants gain all this and more from their mentor and they can get an insight into a range of jobs through Career Story Videos.

This is a taste of one of those videos. We’ll post others for you this week.
