Letters: Education the key to beating homelessness

RECENTLY we celebrated Youth Homelessness Matters Day.

It's where we come together and raise awareness for the serious issue of being homeless at a young age. Currently, 44,000 young people are homeless around Australia.

The theme this year for Youth Homelessness Matters Day was early intervention and I believe that a major part of early intervention is education.

In 2014, our schools helped 38 young people graduate from Year 10, nine young people completed Year 11 and six young people completed Year 12 and gained their HSC.

Youth Off The Streets' schools are a great example of equipping disengaged and disadvantaged young people with the tools they need to secure future employment and break free from the cycle of poverty.
