The “Brighter Futures Transformation Pilot” is an initiative that comes from a collaboration of the Outer Eastern Melbourne Children and Youth Area Partnership. With representatives from many local organisations and groups, the partnership aims to improve outcomes for children and young people at-risk of entering in, and transitioning from, Out-of-Home-Care.
Our “Community Connectors” work with teens to help them identify their strengths, passions and goals. They then look …for ways to connect the young person with local individuals, businesses or groups that can help them pursue and achieve their dreams.
As the lead agency, we are excited to see the achievements of this pilot, and all of the people involved.
