STREAT makes a dollar stretch a long way. And for every dollar you give, we generate a further $3 within our businesses. It costs STREAT over $20,000 to give each young person an average of 1,000 hours of wrap-around support and training across a year, but this investment provides enormous community savings each year (RMIT research shows that on average, each STREAT trainee is costing the community over $50,000 in housing, justice, mental health, hospitals and welfare costs each year, but after gaining the necessary wrap-around support and training at STREAT this cost reduces by over $33,000 per year per young person for the rest of their lives). In short, your donation helps us break the cycle of poverty and disadvantage for young people. That’s the beautiful reality of supporting a social enterprise!

STREAT is a registered Australian charity and any donation over $2 is tax deductible.
