DECJUBA FOUNDATION SUPPORTS SKYLINE
November 21st, 2021
These students and their education are at risk of being impacted for reasons including family circumstances or hard financial situations. Skyline’s mission is to empower these students to thrive through education and personal growth in a caring and supportive community.
Students under Skyline’s support face a series of disadvantages including financial hardship, single parent household, refugee background, physical and mental health challenges, violence within the family, carer responsibilities, and part time work to supplement family income. Most students face up to two of these but some face up to four.
Skyline works with partnering schools who help identify students that have the academic potential but require the support. The Skyline Program subsidises and financially reimburses students and families for their educational costs of attending Year 11 and 12. To date, Skyline has supported 399 students with a 94% retention rate in our program. Skyline Research shows a direct correlation between educational attainment and realisation of a person’s potential and improved quality of life.
“At DECJUBA we believe in the power of education to change the course of a life. I am so excited to launch our Foundation partnership with Skyline & support their vision to build the leaders of tomorrow.”
TANIA AUSTIN, DECJUBA FOUNDER & CEO
