The Sunshine Coast’s gala event of the social calendar, the S.T.E.M.M. Through the Looking Glass – Alice in Wonderland fundraiser, is being held on Saturday 27th July 2013, and we need the help of compassionate corporations to ensure a successful night for this worthy cause.
STEMM (Supporting Teenagers with Education, Mothering and Mentoring) is an innovative program based at Burnside State High School in Nambour, designed to empower pregnant girls and young mums through support and education to gain independence. We currently have 40 teenage girls enrolled in the program with many new referrals coming in each week.
It is important to note that these girls come from Caloundra through to Gympie and travel each day to attend the program. Education Queensland provides the facilities and wages for the teaching staff and the expenses incurred through the delivery of the education lessons.
A partnership has been developed with QLD Health who provide a midwife, child health nurse and psychologist on a once-a-week basis. Our hard work with fundraising goes towards the mothering arm of the program which is totally un-funded. All monies raised support the ‘wrap around services’ which the program provides.
These include: • Counselling and Youth Work services • Adjunct Care facilities and wages • Transport Please note - We rely heavily on volunteers to make up the shortfall in staffing for the delivery of the program. We'd love for you to come along and celebrate the success of our program and our inspiring students.
