Education is the great equiliser in our society.
Our supported programs help empower, engage and enrich lives and futures.
Remote Tutoring for Secondary students and youth
Through our delivery partner Need a Tutor, we work closely on a 1:1 basis to ensure individualised learning and mentoring. 2020 saw an increased need for educational support due to enforced school closures around the country. Through this program we see decreased anxiety associated with secondary school and tertiary studies, increased school attendance and a positive impact on mental wellbeing and self-worth. This program has proven to improve academic results whilst increasing confidence and enhancing employability prospects.
Remote Tutoring for Primary students
This primary school program is designed to educate, engage and empower those who experience difficulty obtaining learning support; tackling one of the most fundamental social problems experienced by our youngest living in remote and rural communities.
Our young lag behind in literacy and numeracy levels particularly in the country. We provide vital learning support through our interventional technology.
Support services for Isolated and Remote communities
Many children in Australia are unable to learn remotely due to the affordability of devices and lack of access to obtain one. This became particularly apparent during 2020 when COVID-19 exacerbated the digital divide that exists. Our DaD (Donate a Device) program donates refurbished, pre-loved devices to children in need. Through our partnership with Optus and Zolo we redistribute these devices enabling remote learning whilst reducing e-waste.
Support services for disadvantaged children
We support marginalised and children of disadvantage. This includes migrant and refugees, low SES, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and children experiencing learning difficulties. Through our supported programs we aim to build individual capacity and improve life outcomes for our most vulnerable.
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
Help us empower our young through education.
