Reengagement Program Partnership with United Way Glenelg

Re-Engagement Program Partnership with United Way Glenelg Obs  June 2015


United Way Glenelg will continue its strong association with the Portland Secondary College’s Portland Re-Engagement Program by administering all funds raised for the innovative Support a Student Placement Initiative.


Launched last year, the scheme encourages individuals and businesses to pledge to support a local student to continue their education at the Re-Engagement Program.Key partner Anne Murphy from the Glenelg and Southern Grampians Local Learning and Employment Network encourages individuals or families to donate to the scheme, contributing whatever amount they can."It’s a great opportunity for groups of people to get together to sponsor a placement between them, and all donations are eligible for a Tax deductible donation," said Ms Murphy.United Way Glenelg executive officer Nicole Angelino said that taking on the administration of the funds raised was a practical way for United Way Glenelg to support the positive work being done by the Re-engagement Program."At United Way Glenelg we believe that education is a crucial building block for a good life. The Portland Re-Engagement Program is to be congratulated on their hard work re-engaging local young people in education."Ms Angelinio added that United Way Glenelg is thrilled to be able to support the program, and believes it is a great example of what the community can achieve by working together. The Re-Engagement Steering Committee, together with the College Council, developed this initiative as a short term funding solution while lobbying continues to the government to improve funding models for alternative settings."We hope that the government will reaffirm its commitment to young people of our region by securing ongoing funding for this vital program," College Council president, Karensa Smith said.For more information on the Support a Student Placement Initiative contact Nicole Angelino on 0410 51 3305 or via This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
