The Geelong Project Interim Report shows a 40% reduction in the number of homeless young students in Geelong

Friday, 16 February 2018

The Geelong Project – Interim Report was released today and has revealed it is producing unprecedented results in preventing ‘at-risk’ young students from becoming homeless, disengaging in their education and leaving school early.

The first three years of The Geelong Project led by Barwon Child, Youth & Family, has seen a 40% reduction in the number of homeless young students in Geelong, a 20% reduction in early school leaving and a 50% reduction in the level of school disengagement* by at risk students in the pilot schools.

This has been as a result of the introduction of a collaborative early intervention approach.
