The centre helps young men to grow in character, competency, maturity and concern for others. This is done through the delivery of educational programs and personal mentoring.
Aldridge is an undertaking of Educational Development Association (EDA), a not for profit company which runs several projects around Australia.
Aldridge is open to people of all religious denominations. Students are expected to respect and understand other beliefs and live according to the standards of behaviour which are compatible with the Christian ethos of the centre. Spiritual activities in the centre are entrusted to Opus Dei, a personal prelature of the Catholic Church.
