School Outreach Program
Our outreach programs have been co-designed with input from health promotion professionals and school teachers to inspire and engage the whole school community. Our approach aligns with the Victorian Curriculum's 'Civics and Citizenship' branch of Humanities and Social Sciences.
All of our outreach programs centre around understanding homelessness and challenging misconceptions about those people experiencing homelessness and hardship. We understand every school is different and offer flexibility in our activity and workshop options in order to best fit with the capacity and curriculum of every school.
All schools that participate in our outreach program receive a certificate of appreciation as well as a follow up report outlining the impact of their contribution

Why we’re so passionate about our work in schools
School-based social advocacy programs have the potential to foster civic engagement, self-efficacy, and positive youth development.
Social advocacy programs also allow students, a group that is disempowered due to their age and dependence on adults, to successfully and meaningfully participate and positively impact social and community problems.
This past year we have seen a substantial increase in the number of both high schools and primary schools interested in participating in our outreach program. As a result, our organisation has prioritised further developing our school outreach program.
