Our Tutoring Program was established in 2009, in response to the increasing number of children and young people needing extra support and guidance with their school work.

Our Tutoring Program is a free service offered to families in our communities who experience financial hardships.

"I am so happy I did so well on my HSC last year and I got into Arts at the University of Sydney. Without my tutor Kate’s support and encouragement, I’m not sure I would have made it! Best of all, I made a great friend!"
