I Have a Dream

'Inspiring Dreams, Enabling Futures' - Ensuring children growing up in material hardship achieve academic and life success.


OUR MISSION is to inspire and enable children at low-decile schools to reach their full potential.

We do this by providing LONG TERM SUPPORT to each student, walking with them from when they enter primary school to tertiary study and beyond.

OUR NAVIGATORS follow each year-level of children from early primary, through secondary and into tertiary education or employment providing mentoring, academic oversight, advocacy and support.

WE BUILD PARTNERSHIPS between schools, families and the community to ensure every child has the resources and networks they need to succeed.

FROM AN EARLY AGE, we instill values of higher education, career opportunities and life success.

We commit to working with the entire cohort of children for 15+ years, right from when they enter school. The causes of poverty and educational deprivation are multi-faceted and multi-generational, so we invest for a generation to overcome them.
