EdConnect Australia is a school-based program with volunteers dedicating their time during school hours, on school grounds. Our services are designed to improve students' literacy, life skills, selfesteem and self-confidence which contribute to improving learning outcomes and improved student achievements. Without support of this nature many students can become disengaged from school, usually resulting from behavioural and social skills problems or barriers they have developed towards learning.
Other students disengage through a lack of social skills or not having a positive role model in their life. EdConnect Australia trains and supports volunteers throughout their journey to ensure vulnerable students are taken care of and benefit from their match with a volunteer.
Schools include Booragoon, Mt Pleasant, Oberthur, West Leeming, Kardinya, Bull Creek , Bicton Primary Schools and North Lake Senior Campus.
