Beginning and Growing
Jabiru is a local, social for purpose, not-for-profit organisation with over 35 years of history in Queensland, partnering with children, young people, and families by creating safe places and relationships that connect people, resources, ideas, and communities. Our purpose is to support children, young people and families to thrive.
We are proud to provide high quality outside school hours care through our Jabiru School-Age Care services in more than 17 schools, where it’s fun to belong!
Our Health and Wellbeing program is all about community, family and individual Engagement, including family, parent and school-based individual supports, Playgroups and community development.
We seek a world where strong, confident children and young people live safe, fulfilling lives.
Communities for Belonging
In 2012 we opened a fee-free college supporting 60 young people who need a flexible approach so they can complete their secondary school education. This work is vital for the wellbeing and prospects of some young people who need extra support to succeed.
Our work with disadvantaged families and young people shows us that communities are incredibly important. In all our work, including our outside school hours care services, we emphasise community and belonging.
