The Street University: a different pathway

The Street University is a project developed to engage youth who may not access mainstream pathways of self-development.

A Ted Noffs Foundation initiative, the Street University has two campuses: STU Liverpool and STU Mt Druitt.

A testament to the power of community and the work of volunteers, “the Street University houses a multitude of programs designed by everyday people who are willing to engage with marginalised young people in the area. People from all walks of life have asked to dedicate their time and unique skills toward either creating short courses or volunteering their energies in another capacity.”

In the true spirit of community engagement the Street Uni “empowers people to address social issues through informed, local and timely action. Where the community sees a need, The Street University provides them an avenue to create their own remedy.”
