Links To Learning grants to Orara and Toormina High Schools
ORARA and Toormina High Schools are to receive funding under the NSW Government's Links To Learning program.
Links to Learning provides grants to non-government community organisations and local government authorities to assist them in working with young people who have left or are at risk of leaving school.
The organisations operate creative and innovative projects that assist the youngsters to reach their full potential.
Young people at risk who access the program are provided with learning opportunities and support services to assist them remain in or re-engage with education or training or transition to employment.
The Nationals Member for Coffs Harbour, Andrew Fraser, said the innovative program will be based on identified local needs.
"Links to Learning will increase the opportunities for students because we know that the work prospects of young people are greatly improved by completing school," he said.
