“Preparing young people with intellectual disabilities and learning differences for a successful life beyond school.”
Welcome to Beyond the School Gates. We work with partner organisations to offer a range of programs that promote health, recreation, family support and work and educational opportunities for young people with intellectual disabilities and learning differences. The programs run during school and out of school hours, including after school, weekends and school holidays.
The opportunities for all young people to be engaged in employment, ongoing education and/or training, to live and participate in their local community and to have active social networks with family and friends are not always easily available for those with intellectual disabilities and learning differences. The aim of the Beyond the School Gates is to break down barriers to social inclusion by increasing access to employment, training and community participation opportunities.
