Research has found a high level of school and community connectedness is one of the most important protective factors for current and future mental wellbeing and positive adolescent development. 

We provide two options for schools to get involved, both are a. brilliant way to teach children about community, and get them involved in volunteering at an early age.

School Program

A volunteer program  that creates real community impact and innovative learning for students. The Letterbox Project is a volunteer program where students and staff revisit the art of handwritten letters by building ties with their community.

Students write letters to aged care facilities, disability facilities and other schools.

This is an invaluable way of teaching children about connection and mental wellbeing, breaking down stereotypes and fostering intergenerational connection.
