The mission of Future Direction Network is to inform, educate and inspire youth from South West Sydney about the importance of attending university. This is to be accomplished through mentoring programs, career pathway planning and financial assistance (scholarships) mechanisms.

The Future Direction Network board of directors have all grown up in South West Sydney and gone on to study at university. Each director understands the challenges that students can face in progressing from high school to university and are dedicated to bridging the information gaps and demystifying the common misperceptions students from South West Sydney hold in regards to university study.
