Partnerships

The Clontarf Foundation is committed to an ongoing relationship with our students; we stay in these boys’ lives and ensure the support, mentoring and advocacy is continuous. To do this we need ongoing relationships and support from our partners and advocates.

Why partner with the Clontarf Foundation

The Clontarf Foundation partners with more than 100 corporate, philanthropic and local organisations across Australia. Partnering with the Clontarf Foundation can provide you with:

  • Knowledge that your organisation and employees are supporting the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and benefitting young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men to participate more meaningfully in society across Australia;
  • Tangible delivery of achievements in education and employment for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men;
  • Access to work-ready Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men who have completed Year 12 and are searching for sustainable and fulfilling employment;
  • Access to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who are keen to engage in school-based traineeships and/or work experience while they study;
  • Opportunities to immerse your staff in a wide range of social and/ or employment based engagement activities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students;
  • Acknowledgement as a supporter of our Foundation – a nationally-recognised leader in engaging and supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to complete their education and gain secure employment.

Partnerships are managed from our Perth, Darwin, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane or Adelaide office and involve strong links between locally appointed ‘Clontarf champions’ from partner organisations and Clontarf staff. An important component of our partnerships is the development of strong relationships between students, academy staff and the partners and communities who support the programme.
