About the organisation

Kids Hope is Australia’s largest early intervention, school-based mentoring program and has been transforming the lives of children experiencing vulnerability in primary schools since 2004. Since then, over 20,000 one-to-one mentoring relationships have been facilitated through the establishment of strong relationships between local primary schools and churches.

Kids Hope mentoring is simple to deliver yet has profound impact. The evidence-based, one-to-one model provides a deep sense of value and care for each individual child, resulting in extraordinary, positive social and emotional results. Our focus on primary school aged children is deliberate as the aim is on ‘preparing young lives so they won't need repairing later’. As children’s lives are transformed through mentoring the flow-on effect at home and in school multiplies the positive impact. Our dream is to see Kids Hope mentoring available in every public primary school in Australia, to see ‘Hope in the life of every child’ because every child deserves hope!
We Value:
1) HOPE because hope expressed through compassion and care leads to socially and emotionally resilient children.Therefore, we practice compassion and care in mentoring Partnerships. We encourage and celebrate, we believe in potential and we work towards a positive future for every child.
2) TRUST because trust is the foundation of authentic and safe Partnerships.Therefore, we are reliable, committed, faithful and trustworthy in our mentoring Partnerships.
3) EXCELLENCE because quality programs lead to positive outcomes for children.Therefore, we are evidence- and research-based. We value expertise and innovation. We train and support our mentors.
4) COMMUNITY because working in local partnerships leads to stronger social outcomes for children.Therefore, we work through community partnerships connecting schools and churches. We focus on scalability and simplicity because there is an urgency to reach all children.
