THE WA RECOVERY COLLEGE ALLIANCE

Connect. Explore. Transform. Learning for everyone.

The Western Australia Recovery College Alliance (WARCA) aims to create opportunities for anyone in the community looking to connect, explore and transform.

ABOUT US

We believe every person has something of value to contribute, which is what makes our learning opportunities unique. We recognise our students bring just as much to the classroom as our educators.

Across the world, Recovery Colleges have demonstrated that an educational approach can be successful in supporting people to overcome barriers, including challenges related to mental health, substance use and other life issues.

WARCA offers pathways to explore personal growth and new perspectives, broaden experience and form connections.

HOW IS WARCA DIFFERENT?

We walk beside our students with the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of who they are and to make meaning in their life through positive learning experiences.

We recognise that our students bring a diverse range of experiences and we acknowledge they are the experts in their own lives. This learning space is for everyone.
