Clontarf Foundation

The Clontarf Foundation aims to improve education, discipline, self-esteem, life skills and employment prospects of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men to enable them to participate more meaningfully in society. It works to increase school engagement and attendance, create a sense of belonging and, ultimately, increase Year 12 completion rates and support them to gain employment.
