"in reaching out to and building up
disengaged youth a better future is created"
CREATING CONNECTED COMMUNITIES:
"It takes a community to raise a child"
Young people need healthy,cohesive and supportive communities to grow in for them to lead fulfilling productive lives.
Humanity Matters is a not for profit community organisation committed to building connected communities where every person is valued for their unique and wonderful qualities.
Humanity Matters contributes towards building communities where vulnerable disengaged young people can experience acceptance, inclusion and appreciation through active participation and mutual giving.
Humanity Matters uses a "Strengths Based Approach" in our work with young people. This means we focus on identifying and building upon the individual strengths each young person has. By focusing on strengths rather than just the negative issues affecting their lives, young people are empowered with a positive mind set to grow and the ability to achieve positive outcomes.
The health of a community impacts upon the well-being of its young people and the opportunities available to them. We believe that creating dynamic connected communities that embrace and celebrate ALL their members opens doors for social inclusion to those young people who have become disengaged and isolated.
We have corporate volunteering opportunities, community collaboration opportunities and opportunities for young people and community members to share their unique skills and talents in contributing towards the building of a dynamic, inclusive and caring community.
As an ATO approved deductible gift recipient, all donations to Humanity Matters are fully tax deductible.
