About the organisation

Jesuit Social Services is a social change organisation working to build a just society where all people can live to their full potential.

Since 1977, we’ve provided services in some of the most disadvantaged in our community.

We place a high priority on advocacy and are a leader in policy development and research.

About the program

The Ignatius Learning Centre opened in Term 1 of 2021, initially enrolling approximately 20 young men, aged 15 – 17, offering the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) as the curriculum. Enrolling students for the first time in 2021, the Ignatius Learning Centre offers an education that fosters responsibility and transformation, and that engages young people who have had a severely disrupted education and are at significant risk of incarceration and/or further involvement with the youth justice system.

As a specialist Catholic Secondary School guided by a Catholic social ethos and Ignatian heritage, we will provide a holistic education, so that students can experience success in a safe and supportive environment. The Ignatius Learning Centre will enable students to restore hope, experience a sense of belonging, flourish and reach their potential.
