About Beacon Foundation
Beacon Foundation is an Australian charity working to revolutionise school education to make it more relevant, engaging and useful in order to reduce youth unemployment. They work with disadvantaged youth and communities, including schools, business and industry, to co-design education programs that provide secondary school students with real-world experience, practical skills, support and inspiration to move onto further education and/or future employment.
“MyRoad’s focus is on schools in disadvantaged areas where exposure to mentoring will have the greatest impact. The opportunity to have some of the most experienced and creative minds in Australia focus on how best to capitalise on our award winning (2017 AIIA iAwards) solution is an incredible opportunity. We look forward to working with all of the CCO participants to develop MyRoad into Australia’s leading youth work readiness mentoring program and make a greater difference in the lives of more young Australians.”
