Youth of Tomorrow has reshaped their national education program as the Schools Future Fit Program which delivers comprehensive life education programs that empower youth in the 21st century.
The Schools Future Fit Program is linked to the Australian Curriculum, aims to reduce youth related issues identified by the Australian Human Rights Commission and delivers 6 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals as part of the programs 5 key categories in social inclusion & diversity, physical health, mental wellbeing, gender equality and sustainability.
Wimbledon Champion and Patron Pat Cash is one of the Co-founders of the program and believes youth need to be championed into the future using different education methods to support their physical, mental and overall development needs.
“We need to create opportunities, pathways and sustainable education programs which support the existing curriculum and combat youth issues. We need to do things differently and support the diversity of youth in Australia,” Cash said.
Since 2008 and in partnership with Tennis Australia the national education program has had over 9,000 youth participate in the annual Flagship Events which are delivered at Melbourne Park, Victoria, Pat Rafter Arena, Queensland and Ken Rosewall Arena, New South Wales.
With the recent restructure, the Schools Future Fit Program is offered nationally through various platforms and channels to support youth, parents, teachers and schools in Australia.
The success of the program has soared in recent years with increased demand by schools and partnerships nationally and internationally who see the benefits and impact on youth in the 21st century.
