Making Alternatives Possible (MAP) Program







Delivered by IMVC, the MAP Program is designed for young adults who are seeking an alternative learning environment to mainstream schooling.

MAP aims to inspire students to explore what they want to achieve in the future, acquiring essential skills, knowledge, and competencies, in preparation for further education, training or employment.

Students participate in Career and Industry exploration activities beyond the classroom. Small group settings also provide a more supportive and individualised approach to learning.
