About Youth+

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 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.

St Joseph's Catholic Flexible Learning Centre is a coeducational Catholic school in the Edmund Rice tradition under the EREA Youth+ Central West Flexi Schools Network. It has a clear commitment to social justice and stands in solidarity with disenfranchised young people of all social, cultural and religious backgrounds, with a particular sensitivity to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. The school provides holistic learning experiences that address the complex needs of students and promotes their emotional, cognitive, spiritual and academic development.
