Welcome to Edu Change
Empowering Young People with Disabilities
At Edu Change, we are on a mission to transform the lives of young people with disabilities as they transition from high school to adulthood.
Our organization is dedicated to providing essential life skills education and support to bridge the gap between secondary and tertiary education. We firmly believe that everyone has the right to ongoing education, and we are committed to promoting equity and ensuring that all individuals with disabilities have the opportunity to lead independent and fulfilling lives.
The Stark Reality
In Australia, a staggering 44% of the population within this age group transition to tertiary education, enjoying access to a wealth of opportunities for personal and professional growth. Sadly, the picture is vastly different for young people with disabilities. Only a mere 9% of them access any form of tertiary education or continuous skills-building programs past the age of 18.
A Disturbing Disparity
This stark contrast between the 90% of young people with disabilities who access primary and secondary education and the meager 9% who continue their educational journey is a glaring inequality that cannot be ignored. Edu Change recognizes this gap and is dedicated to addressing it head-on.
