Lunch with Anthony Cavanagh

As Agents of Change, Ganbina and its programs are the Stepping Stones to Success

Lunch with Anthony Cavanagh
27th April 2016

‘’Ganbina focuses on empowering each and every young person enrolled on our program to realise their full potential
so they can reach for the stars in leading their families and communities to a better way of life’’

Many people ask why Indigenous youngsters need specialised support to complete their education, undertake training and secure decent jobs. After all, these are things that most of us take for granted.

Ganbina operates Australia’s most successful Indigenous school to work transition program called Jobs4U2. 

 

It is a registered charity which employs 10 people with its Chief Executive Officer reporting to the Board of Directors.  Its offices are in Shepparton and Melbourne.

 

The organisation operates independently and is free from any political, religious or other affiliations.  It relies entirely on support received from philanthropic trusts, corporate partners and individual donors to carry out its work.

Ganbina’s vision is to empower Indigenous people to achieve true social and economic equality with all Australians within a time frame of two generations.

Its mission is to equip young Indigenous people with the education, training and life skills they need to fulfil their full potential. In this way, they become ‘agents of change’, inspiring and leading their communities to carve out a brighter future for themselves, their children and their children’s children.

To date, Ganbina has helped over 950 young Indigenous people to finish school, undertake tertiary or vocational training and secure ‘real’ jobs.  This is in stark contrast to the majority of Indigenous young people, with over 60 per cent of all Indigenous 17-24 years olds in Australia neither fully engaged in either work or study.
