Tina and her husband Michael own and operate independent supermarkets across Victoria and New South Wales. Having lived in regional Victoria for more than a decade, they became increasingly passionate about abating multi-generational poverty. As such they have, in their business and through their alignments with local community groups, made it a priority to give local teenagers empowerment pathways to own their future.
After several years of being a donor of the Skyline Program, the initiated an extension of the Skyline Program into Alexandra, Yea and Mansfield with a view to providing local VCE students with access to thrive through education and personal growth.
Tina says “Skyline provides a unique opportunity to invest back into our community by assisting young people to maximise their ability and transform their life through a rewarding and sustainable career. We are delighted that community leaders in Alexandra, Yea and Mansfield have generously joined us to grow the number of student positions we can offer and therefore the impact for our local gifted and academically talented students to enable them to realise their dreams”.
