KIDS HOPE AUS is Australia’s largest early intervention, school-based mentoring program. It has been impacting the lives of children in Australian schools since 2004. Over that time thousands of disadvantaged children have been matched with mentors in primary schools.
Caring relationships with mentors have a significant impact on children because they help to meet their emotional and social development needs and enhance their capacity to learn. KIDS HOPE AUS mentored children consistently show increased self-esteem, confidence and resilience.
Crossroads members have been mentoring at Werribee Primary for many years and find that the interaction with these kids is a rewording and fulfilling experience. If you want to know more please speak with Sandra Savory (our local coordinator).
