Telco Together appointed the Beacon Foundation as a Community Partner in 2017. The Beacon Foundation is dedicated to helping disadvantaged communities and people living in areas of high youth disengagement and unemployment.
The Beacon Foundation takes a preventative approach to youth unemployment and the range of societal hardships that stem from it. Beacon believes that every young person deserves a chance. They work with schools, businesses and communities to help bring relevance to the curriculum, while inspiring young people to think about careers, skills and experience required for the workforce, long before they leave school.
Beacon’s school-based programs and innovative online site eBeacon provide an opportunity for local communities to connect with schools in low socio-economic areas and help them to create real world education and work experience, that is both relevant and engaging for young people.
