Marist180 is a not-for-profit organisation committed to empowering people with skills, knowledge, practical support and encouragement. Also known as Marist Youth Care Limited, Marist180 was established in 1896, and has developed into one of the largest service providers for youth at risk in Australia today. This means we have been providing services to people in Australia for over 100 years.
We strive to care for all who need support and hope, from people without a home to those seeking asylum. We also support other vulnerable groups in society who may be at risk of exclusion from education, employment or basic rights, or who are homeless, who experience domestic violence, or are otherwise in need of care. Marist180 is inspired by the spirit of Marcellin Champagnat, the founder of the Marist Community. He went out into the world to give hope, education and love to those in need – without judgement, limits or conditions. Like him, we advocate and work towards education, employment, and social inclusion, empowering people to take steps to achieve positive change.
Our people offer care and support to people at risk, working with communities and families and providing educational and learning services. As an organisation, we rely on each other and work as a team to deliver results. This is why it is important that all of the decisions made by each person every day at Marist180 must be based on our values of client focused, respect, integrity, innovation and perseverance. Our business is, simply, people.
