Who is Kids Hope?
Kids Hope train and guide mentors from local churches and connect them with local primary schools for one-to-one mentoring of vulnerable children. Each mentor is only allocated one child which ensures the child feels special.
Their program builds resilience, confidence, overall well-being and transformation in lives of vulnerable children; benefiting the child, school, family and community.
Currently in 5% of the public primary schools in Australia and 10% in Victoria; Kids Hope have a waiting list of Schools and children in need of this transformational program.
Why are we partnering?
Children across Australia are experiencing life and family situations that are causing stresses like never before. Sadly, as a result, anxiety, depression, and self-destructive behaviour have reached our primary school children and teachers are feeling overwhelmed and under-resourced to deal with the growing problems. In response to this growing concern, Kids Hope is providing early intervention mentoring and positive role-modelling to vulnerable children.
Kids Hope is Australia’s largest early intervention schools based mentoring program.
By impacting the life of a vulnerable child in primary school, you can alter the trajectory of their learning and of their life experience.
Kids Hope currently have a wait list of Schools and children in need of this transformational program. We want to ensure those children are able to access this support.
What are we currently working on?
We are helping to vulnerable children thrive, providing ongoing support for their program to continue and grow.
We are also providing the funding for Kids Hope to access the Duty of Care software; helping ensure the safety of the children they support and reducing the time spent monitoring the status of Working with Children Checks.
