Our mission is to inspire and empower disadvantaged students to realise their potential through education.
Our vision is for every person to have access to a quality education, regardless of background or circumstance.
We are a non-profit, university student-run organisation that offers free educational support to disadvantaged high school students in Melbourne, Victoria.
Our organisation was started in 2006 by Emil Kogan, with a group of other Monash University students. We obtained Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status in 2009. Due to the success of our Monash University chapter (South East), we established our University of Melbourne chapter (North West) in 2016.
Our main focus is on providing students from refugee, asylum seeker, recent migrant and low socioeconomic backgrounds with free tutoring. We also provide textbooks, calculators, stationery and other items to students in need.
Our volunteers provide high school students with free tutoring in three programs: Homework Clubs, In-School Tutoring and Individual Tutoring.
Our Hands on Health seminars support high school students who are interested in applying for health sciences courses. These seminars are run in cooperation with Monash University's Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.
To date, over 900 university students have joined us as volunteer tutors. We are determined to continue to provide disadvantaged students with free assistance in their education.
