The program contributes to education costs, enabling young people to fully participate in learning and complete their education. The foundation works closely with secondary schools and provides tailored ongoing support for the duration of studies. CLOVERDALE CARE Breakfast Program The Newsboys Foundation has supported the Cloverdale Care breakfast program for 130 secondary school students at Northern Bay College, Goldsworthy Campus, Corio. Having a healthy breakfast is a proven way to help boost students’ concentration, which in turn helps their success at school and leads to positive results later in life. COMMUNITY LIVING & RESPITE SERVICES Club Teen Holiday Program & Club Teen Cooking Program The aim of the Community Living & Respite Services’ holiday programs for young people with disabilities is to encourage children to live life to the full. The programs, supported by the Newsboys Foundation, operate in Echuca, Lockington, Rochester, Cohuna and Kyabram. They engage young people in a range of fun and educational activities, including a cooking program. COTTAGE BY THE SEA REEF Program The Newsboys Foundation is supporting 15 students from St Albans to participate in the two-year REEF program organised by Cottage by the Sea. REEF camps promote “Respect, Education, Environment and Friendship” and are designed to help participants develop self-esteem, leadership skills and confidence, particularly during the transitional years from primary to secondary school. Young people participate in nine camps over two years. The camps have become an important, positive part of many young people’s formative years. DISABILITY SPORT & RECREATION Future Leaders Camp Disability Sport and Recreation conducted a three-day leadership camp for 12 young people with disabilities. The camp encouraged the participation of 15-18 year-olds in sport and recreation. As well as increased physical activity, the young people were supported to encourage other young people with disabilities to participate in sport and recreation. A 12-month mentoring program for the participants provides ongoing support. Feedback from young people attending the camp will inform any future Disability Sport and Recreation Youth Engagement Strategy. Community Living & Respite Services Cottage by the Sea
