The Beacon Foundation is a national not-for-profit organisation that seeks to influence societal attitudes and culture through the delivery of valid and relevant projects. It is the hope of the Beacon Foundation that each young person will develop an independent resolve to achieve personal success, recognising the value of education in their lives and also the importance of the local and broader community.

 

 

Established in Echuca in 2001, the Echuca Moama Beacon Foundation has for the past ten years, in collaboration with the local secondary colleges, and business houses assisted the youth of this region in enhancing and expanding their career opportunities. 

 

A key strategy of the Beacon Foundation is to initiate original and innovative schemes that demonstrate solutions to youth disengagement and encourage self help at a local level.

 

The implementation of these schemes relies on the support of the local community and especially the business community.

 

I thank our current sponsors and businesses who have assisted in the delivery of this program for their support and enthusiasm, and urge other community groups and local business houses to assist where possible.

 

Support for the program can be shown in many ways – including offers of work experience placements, student industry visits, ‘Adopt a class’ by local business, school based apprenticeships, personal presentations, assistance with practice job interviews, student mentoring, or sponsorship.

 

All business and community groups are welcomed. The determination of the broader community to extend the hand of inclusion and friendship to the young people of Echuca Moama can only result in positive outcomes.
