Our Purpose

A Port Stephens community in which schools, businesses and community members work together to assist all young people to transition from school to meaningful employment. *


Work closely with Port Stephens schools and their communities to implement responsive initiatives that support and motivate all young people, in particular those in most need, to engage fully in education, training and meaningful employment.


  • Our community cares about the future of its youth
  • Our young people want to positively contribute to
    their world
  • Our schools and their communities want to work
    together to benefit young people
  • Equitable outcomes require differentiated inputs
