Youth engagement, school transition and retention

The department supports a range of projects designed to achieve positive education outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth, through increasing school engagement and attainment.

These projects support the transition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth to further education, training and employment.

Projects include: scholarships and mobility and leadership projects to support young people complete year 12 and gain vocational or tertiary qualifications; engagement and mentoring activities; and prevention and diversionary programmes to encourage re-engagement with education, training or employment.
