Kids Hope Aus is Australia's largest early-intervention, school-based mentoring program, bringing together volunteer mentors from a local church with vulnerable children from the local primary school.
"One Church - One School - One Mentor - One Child - One Hour per week"
Waverley Baptist Church partners with Jells Park Primary School. Numerous volunteer mentors meet weekly for an hour to build a positive mentoring relationship with a child who has an academic, social or emotional need, thereby enhancing their capacity to learn. This program is ‘non-religious’ and volunteers respect clear boundaries and guidelines in this area.
