Seed Foundation Australia currently works with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth from rural and remote communities providing pathways into higher education and employment.
The work of the Foundation is designed to dramatically change trajectories for each young person, whilst also realising the potential for their success to ultimately relieve the endemic poverty and destitution that pervades many remote Indigenous communities. To achieve this, the Foundation has decided to initially focus on increasing Indigenous representation throughout the health sector workforce.
We invite you to be a part of this exciting journey, changing the possibilities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth and their communities.
Connect 'n' Grow is a Registered Training Organisation, that has been delivering nationally recognised health training to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander secondary school students since 2012.
At a community level, this success has inspired a ground swell of interest regarding health issues and opportunities in healthcare. A higher proportion of students are considering tertiary educational pathways and careers within the local health industry. Universities and health industry partners have also expressed renewed commitment to providing our students with medium to long-term career prospects.
