Iris Foundation is thrilled to be chosen as one of 100 nationwide Westpac Foundation Community Grant recipients for 2019.
This $10,000 grant will help the Foundation to deliver Y-Connections programs that are tailored to address the needs of students in years 7 and 8.
Y-Connections is designed to inspire, motivate and build self-esteem and resilience.

Y-Connections offers participants practical tools to manage difficult situations, make social connections and foster a sense of hope about the future.
