The ERCRS program based in St Albans provides educational support to young students of a refugee background. Many of the recently arrived young people, who have been accepted into Australia on a refugee visa, have had very disrupted or non-existent schooling. The great majority are struggling to come to terms with the English language and to fit into a new educational environment. ERCRS assists these students in this transition. The program is integrated with the opportunity to learn more about social and recreational opportunities around Melbourne.
