Established in 2010, The Huddle is a joint initiative of the North Melbourne Football Club (NMFC), the Scanlon Foundation and the Australian Multicultural Foundation with the aim to enhance social cohesion by addressing the causes of disengagement among young people.
The Huddle supports young people to learn for life.
Since inception, The Huddle programs have engaged more than 50,000 young people from low socio-economic communities with a focus on supporting people from newly arrived migrant and refugee backgrounds across the areas of North Melbourne, Flemington, Kensington and West Melbourne. More recently, The Huddle’s programs have grown to support youth in some of Australia’s fastest growing municipalities, including Wyndham and Hume.
