An opportunity to succeed

Clontarf helps young men to attend school, finish Year 12 and enter employment.

Using supportive relationships, a welcoming environment and a diverse range of activities, the young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men in our programme develop improved self-esteem and confidence which assists them to participate in education, employment and society in a positive way.

Our approach has proven to be very successful, not only in attracting young men to school and keeping them there, but also in having them embrace more disciplined, purposeful and healthy lifestyles.

Witness how the Clontarf programme provides strong mentors, rich activity and a safe space to keep these young men in school and on the right path.
