In the spirit of Edmund Rice, ERCRS seeks to improve the lives of and opportunities for,
children and young people of a disadvantaged background.
This is done by supporting them in their education and providing them with access to free learning support along with a range of social activities throughout the year.
We're a not-for-profit organisation based in St Albans, Melbourne, and we provide free learning support and a range of social services to students of a disadvantaged background.
Our programs include:
This operates in St Albans on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:30-5:00pm at the Errington Centre, and
Thursdays from 3:00-5:00pm at Sunshine Harvester Primary School.
This program involves the participation of peer tutors from secondary schools around Melbourne and adult volunteers from the community.
This operates on Tuesday afternoons from :30-5:30pm at the Errington Centre and
Saturdays from 10:30am-12:30pm at the Catholic Regional College Library in St Albans.
Students are paired one-to-one with an adult tutor who can assist them with their studies.
This is for all involved in either of the above learning support programs.
Activities include excursions and events throughout the year as well as two camps with our sister organisation,ﾠ Edmund Rice Camps, Victoria.
This involves bimonthly excursions around Melbourne for students in years 10-11 from the tutoring program and their volunteer mentors.
It provides a forum for these young women to support one another, build confidence, develop positive peer networks and become role models within their community.
Edmund Rice Community & Refugee Services (ERC&RS) is excited to announce that we have launched a young men’s mentoring program called Brighter Tomorrow Boys’ Group. This program began last month on 16th July in St Albans.
The Brighter Tomorrow Boys’ Group will operate as a partnership between ERC&RS, the Edmund Rice Community Partnerships and a number of local schools.
