Academy Movement is a not for profit organisation that provides schools with education advice and support services to start and maintain highly successful and engaging sports academies in schools.

Academy Movement works with schools with disengaged youth and provides them with a model of better student engagement, academic rigour and high level sport.

We specialise in Rugby Union academies in Victorian Government Schools with a large proportion of Pasifika students enrolled.

The need for better programs for these students in particular is apparent when looking at the statistics. Currently, Pasifika make up approximately 2% of the Victoria population but 14% of the Youth Justice system in the state. There is a strong correlation with early school leavers and youth incarcerated. This highlights the need for students to stay in school through better engagement, support and connection to school.

Through our fundraising partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation, donations to Setting the Foundation for LIFE are tax deductible. So please show you support for this vital program by donating today!
