Kids Hope

KidsHope '23

Kids Hope is Australia's largest early intervention, school-based mentoring program for children experiencing vulnerability.

Since 2004, Kids Hope has impacted thousands of children who, through care and support, have seen their lives transformed and now experience increased confidence, resilience and joy.

GWAC is a part of this, with a team of mentors who visit Glen Waverley South P.S.

We are currently seeking to GROW the number of mentors for 2024. Please contact the office if you'd like to express interest in being trained as a Mentor.

The powerful one-to-one model positively impacts children as emotional and social development needs are met and learning capacity enhanced. High-quality training structures and child-safe processes have flow-on benefits to mentors, classrooms, schools, families, and communities.

The model is simple... On Child, One Mentor, One Hour a Week. The impact... Immeasurable!
