OASIS Education EOI


A nationwide education initiative combining enterprise skills development, community service and wellbeing outcomes. 

Homelessness experienced by young people aged 12-24 years old has increased 9.9% in 5 years. More than ever, the institutions which prepare young people for the future need renewed support and new ways to respond to youth homelessness. The OASIS Homelessness Project equips educators with a youth homelessness education toolkit, which brings together learning in enterprise skills, emotional and cultural intelligence and social action.

The project accompanies the 2019 release of LIFE AFTER THE OASIS (by Shark Island Productions, the team behind The Final Quarter), which asks ‘where are they now?’ of six young people whose stories of youth homelessness were captured in the award-winning documentary THE OASIS (2008). THE OASIS has captured the hearts and minds of millions of Australians and more than 55,000 students.

We’re looking for the next generation of education providers to become valued partners, and to help us deliver meaningful and outcome focused learning experiences for your students.

There are four upcoming opportunities below:

1. Watch the LIFE AFTER THE OASIS documentary online 

Sign up to receive early viewing access to LIFE AFTER THE OASIS and a sneak preview of the curriculum mapped lesson plans by Cool Australia to test out in your classroom. All educators who complete the 10 minute feedback survey by the 31st of August receive a free copy of The Solider and go in the draw to win a $200 EFTPOS gift card.
