About EdConnect Australia (formerly The School Volunteer Program)
At EdConnect Australia (formerly The School Volunteer Program), we’re training and mobilising a nationwide army of volunteers to provide life-changing mentoring and learning support in schools for young people who are at risk of not fulfilling their educational potential.
It’s about inspiring older generations to inspire the next. It’s about raising literacy and numeracy standards, but also equipping young people with the life skills they need. It’s about enhancing wellbeing and enriching lives and communities by enabling people of all ages to help each other. It’s about giving everyone every opportunity to realise their potential – in school, in life, in society.
Whatever stage of life you’re at, we all have the potential to do good, to make a difference. At EdConnect it’s our mission to unleash this potential for the greater good across Australia. We’re harnessing the wisdom and skills of older generations to enrich the learning experience for young people who are at risk of falling by the wayside in an often over-burdened school system.
We’re the only national charity in Australia with this unique focus and purpose.
