EdConnect Australia is a charity that trains, supports and places volunteers in local schools to improve the lives of vulnerable students.
We connect generations.
Our volunteers make a life-long impact on students’ lives by “giving back” and sharing their life experience with younger generations.
We connect communities.
Our volunteers work in their local schools and build lasting relationships with the people in their community. Our volunteers lead by example by donating their time.
Our volunteers meet face-to-face with students during the school day ensuring a meaningful connection is made to better support a vulnerable student.
OUR VOLUNTEERS CHANGE LIVES.
We connect volunteers who want to make a difference, with young people in school who need extra help and guidance, be it mentoring or learning support.
We aim to equip young people with the life skills they need to succeed. We do this by building positive and supportive relationships with each student.
