The 'MAD Friends' program supports young Tasmanians to be informed, confident and active citizens.  By donating to 'MAD Friends' you will be empowering young people to make a better future for themselves and the world. 

Award winning teachers recommend our services:

"Since I discovered the Global Learning Resource Library it has become one of the first places I go to for resources and information when planning my lessons. The staff, the links, the range of posters, videos and books are all fantastic and help to bring my lessons alive." Gini Ennals, EAL teacher and founder of Students Against Racism, winners of the 2015 Australian Human Rights Racism It Stops With Me Award. 

"The Centre has provided me with SO much support over my time working at Rokeby High School! Without them, my students and I would not have been able to pull off two amazing concerts raising money for various charities. They constantly supported my students with their projects, connecting us with organisations, resources and their wealth of knowledge in ANY area my students wanted to make a difference in. THANKS!!" Emma Aorangi, teacher and winner of the 2010 Pride of Australia Inspiration Medal.

Our resources and programs are designed to promote the goal of the Australian Curriculum for students to become: successful learners; confident and creative individuals; active and informed citizens.

Evidence shows that the best way to do this is to harness students' passions and concerns, give them a voice, and get them involved in real community projects. 

How will the funds be used?

By contributing to 'MAD Friends' you are helping the Global Learning Resource Library to provide information and resources for teachers and students through two websites - A Fairer World and A Fairer World Youth - and a public library. Our library is the only public library in Tasmania specialising in social justice and human rights.

Key areas of expenditure 

The funds will be used to allow us to support teachers and young people by developing and purchasing resources, maintaining our websites, and promoting and distributing the resources to schools and young people.
