Reengaging disadvantaged young mothers with education
April 24th, 2018

Program: Breaking the Cycle and Building Bridges

Zoe Support is one of our seven successful 2017/ 2018 Ansvar Community Education Program grant recipients. It is a community based organisation operating within Mildura and surrounding districts. Breaking the Cycle and Building Bridges program will target disadvantaged and disengaged pregnant and or young mother to reengage with education.

The grant will cover half of the funds required for the program and will allow an Education Support Officer to be employed. The ES Officer will provide professional services to support young mothers’ transition back to education. They will also help to address barriers to successful education such as housing, transport and flexible pathways to obtain their qualifications.

Key Objectives:

-To increase the number of young pregnant and parenting mothers engaged in education in the Mildura region.
-To assist young pregnant and parenting mothers to reconnect with education to improve their overall economic outcomes for the future.
-Through improved education success, potential for increased employment outcomes and developed social capacity.

Expected outcomes from the program

With the on boarding of the Education Support Officer, Zoe Support can improve effectiveness and efficiencies to assess and address barriers to young parents ready to engage in education, training and employment.
Zoe Support aim to improve health and wellbeing outcomes for parents and children, along with increasing numbers of families accessing local health and community services.

We had to share these wonderful words from the Lighthouse Foundation's Michelle Michie, Philanthropy Manager. The Lighthouse Foundation were one of our 2016/ 2017 Community Education Program Grant Recipients.....

“We are immensely grateful for this support which has been crucial in life changing work which has helped so many young homeless girls get off to a healthy start with their newborns. I wish you could experience what I do, when I see these girls graduate to independent living with a strong attachment to their child. Without this help, so many of them would not have been able to manage, and would have given up their baby into the state care system.

Thank you for the partnership, and the tangible feeling that the Ansvar team truly cared about homeless children and young people, and that you had their back.”
