Street Retreat Program
Street Retreats are a popular, fun and meaningful way of engaging with students around the issues of homelessness and poverty. Currently Street Retreats happen across Brisbane and the Gold Coast, with plans to expand these to other areas such as Rockhampton and Mackay. Each Street Retreats vary in length ranging from a 1 day experience to a whole week. Street Retreats are a collaborative initiative between Vinnies and the School with the purpose of meeting the needs and learning outcomes of your students. A major part of our Street Retreats involved connecting in with other organisations that work in supporting people who are experiencing homelessness and poverty. Due to the nature of Street Retreats this program is only offered to students in years 9-12.
