About Youth+ & FAME

Edmund Rice Education Australia Youth+ (EREA Youth+) is a network of flexible learning centres that offer young people an opportunity to reconnect with education in a setting that is non-judgemental, inclusive and flexible. With a focus on literacy and numeracy, all programming and learning activities are developed based on young people’s individual learning plans which are customised based on learning levels and what they require to re-engage.

Northern Flexible Learning is to the north of Adelaide and is an Outreach of FAME. FAME first began as a mobile service in the southern suburbs of Adelaide for young people from complex backgrounds who had disengaged from mainstream schooling. This has now been extended to the north of Adelaide and servicing those in the Playford Council area. Northern Flexible Learning creates a setting where young people can access a safe environment, experience a high level of wellbeing and receive educational support to help them achieve outcomes in their Personal Learning Plans (PLP). Northern Flexible Learning’s aim is to re-engage those young people who have for one, or may reasons, have disengaged from mainstream schooling.
