Dedicated to the prevention of youth suicide through the education of vulnerable young people in Blacktown, NSW.

Eagles RAPS is committed to preventing youth suicide of vulnerable young people in Blacktown, NSW, through the provision of education, so they can develop resilience in the face of life's challenges. They work with a variety of young people who have quite often endured harsh life experiences so unfathomable their mere desire to succeed is inspiration in itself. 


2017 Pitch
Funds raised: $30,710

Eagles RAPS sought funding at TFN Sydney in September 2017 to support an education program for vulnerable young people who have all come to a point where they are unable to attend mainstream schooling for various reasons. For many, Eagles RAPS has been their only chance of education and an opportunity to gain skills needed to succeed in life. All young people are individually case-managed to address barriers and issues in their lives and are supported by qualified staff and volunteers.
