“Involvement with HYMC has provided Youth Express staff with excellent professional development through quality seminars and presentations. It has also enabled us to nominate students for scholarship opportunities that have proven to be a terrific support to recipients. I encourage other organisations to join this pro-active, well-run collaborative as there are many ways to contribute and wonderful benefits.” Deborah McCrohon

Callaghan College – Jesmond Senior Campus with its focus on Year 11 and Year 12 only offers a dynamic and stimulating Young Adult Learning Environment supporting the needs, expectations, and aspirations of 15-19 year old students. College culture, structures and curriculum are developed to prepare young adults to transition successfully to university, technical education (TAFE) and the future world of work.

“I joined HYMC five years ago when I started working as the Study Centre Coordinator at Callaghan College Jesmond Senior campus. During this time I have built a strong relationship with HYMC and successfully supported our scholarship recipients. The benefits of the HYMC scholarships are not only the immediate positive changes to the student’s lives but the long term benefits linked to completing the HSC. Thanks to HYMC and their sponsors for the continuing work with Youth in the Hunter Region, HYMC is an inspirational organisation making an incredible difference in education.” Julie Popp
