Follow the Dream programs support students who aspire to successfully complete their secondary schooling, show aptitude for learning, and demonstrate a positive approach towards education.

Academic enrichment lies at the heart of the program, with each student offered literacy & numeracy support, specialist tutoring, personalised learning plans, one-on-one mentoring, and practical experience. Throughout the academic year, students also engage in a range of extra-curricular activities that broaden their horizons, build resilience, develop confidence and promote cultural pride. 

The program introduces students to a wealth of experiences, opens their eyes to a huge range of post-school pathways, and encourages them to dream big. Students who are part of the 'Follow the Dream Family' gain a sense of identity, belonging, and purpose. Not only do they embark on a positive post-school pathway, but they emerge as strong role models for their peers, siblings and wider community.
