Target 120

This program is a collaboration between Ebenezer and the Federal Government in changing the lives of young teenagers who have emerged from challenging circumstances and dysfunctional scenarios.

Its aim is to change the future for these young individuals, guiding them away from negative life outcomes and giving them personal support, training, and confidence that helps them build their lives around their own individual goals.
