ALUMNI​

Since 2000, Clontarf has helped more than 3,000 young men complete Year 12 and find employment. Many of them have gone on to have successful careers, purchase houses, start their own young families and maintain healthy and fulfilling lives.

Clontarf for life

Even after participants finish Year 12, Clontarf remains a big part of their lives.

Our specialist Employment Officers work closely with our alumni to help them find sustainable, fulfilling employment or guide them as they continue their life journey.

Many alumni continue to attend Clontarf events many years after graduation and use the opportunity to share their own personal stories of perseverance, resilience and success with the current generation of young Clontarf men coming through the programme. In doing so, they become important role models and demonstrate the value of completing school, finding employment and leading more positive and healthy lives.

“Clontarf helped me set up in Melbourne. They enabled me to chase my dream of playing basketball and being an influence for the next generation. They really cared and were supportive of me and my ambitions. Contact has never stopped.”
