Beacon’s End Game

Working towards an Australia that understands, cares and is motivated to support young people to successfully transition from education to meaningful employment.

The Beacon Foundation

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 120 schools and communities in 2015.
