Kids Hope Aus
Every week there are about a dozen people from our church who spend time mentoring children at
Charles Conder Primary School, through a program called Kids Hope Aus.
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.
