Sir David Martin Foundations funds three Mission Australia programs that support young people. Read more about each program below.
South West Youth Services, run by our partners at Mission Australia, provides education, employment, life skills and counselling support to marginalised youth aged from 12 to 24 years in the south west Sydney region. It is a preventative and early intervention service that aims to discourage young people from disengaging with education and falling into unemployment or crime.
Creative Youth Initiative, run by our partners at Mission Australia, is a unique service that runs free art and music courses for young people aged 16-25 years who are facing many and varied challenges in their lives. The program uses self-expression as a tool to develop creativity and self esteem.
