The school has a small group of committed volunteers who provide mentorship and support to the school in partnership with Ed Connect Australia. Our students look forward to the volunteers coming into the school each week to meet and work with them.
We connect volunteers with young people in school who need additional support, inspiring older generations to inspire the next. The team here at EdConnect has been training volunteers and connecting them with local schools across Australia for over 20 years. At any one time, we have over 1,300 volunteers active in more than 260 schools across the country.
The academic and social support our volunteers provide – through one-on-one mentoring and classroom learning support – provide both a safety net and a springboard for young people who might otherwise struggle to realise their potential, in school and life.
