Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
School disengagement in disadvantaged areas of the Northern Region of Melbourne, Australia has contributed to poor educational outcomes for these communities. In collaboration with Banksia Gardens Community Services, we created a catalog of after-school enrichment program offerings and determined that there is a deficit of program offerings to meet the community's needs and interests. In order to support stronger academic re-engagement, we analyzed the needs, interests, and engagement patterns among youth in the community through interviews, focus groups, and surveys with experts to produce recommendations for Banksia Gardens’ Study Group.
