The 5 Acre Project

The 5 Acre Project is TLC’s adolescent program- running across two days every week over a full school term.
5 Acres has a carefully developed framework designed to address the impacts of developmental trauma, ill mental health and the myriad of barriers that young people can face causing disengagement from education, healthy connections, wellbeing and belonging. This program is designed to build strong relationships with each young person in a non-threatening and safe environment providing the opportunity to develop and strengthen a range of transferable skills and knowledge through the hands-on programming addressing barriers both personal and academic to ensure equity and access can be achieved in re-engagement back into learning.

Each young person is individually case managed to ensure valuable interventions, referrals or supports are put in place, advocacy for all young people is provided and successful pathways are developed to support best outcomes into education, training, employment, health and wellbeing and community connection.
