Carringbush Adult Education
Aims to empower Richmond and Collingwood's most high-need adult learners, with a focus on migrant-background residents at the beginning of their education and vocational pathways.
Carringbush works to educate and empower high-need adult learners in the Richmond and Collingwood areas, with a strong focus on supporting people from refugee and migrant backgrounds. They provide high-quality language, literacy and numeracy classes to people experiencing barriers to participation in traditional training and employment opportunities.
Funds raised: $30,000
Pitching at TFN Melbourne in February 2018, Carringbush Adult Education raised $30,000 to fund their volunteer manager one day a week. Who in turn will recruit and train 15 volunteers to assist in their adult education courses for disadvantaged people living in local housing estates.
