Arts and Education

Why are we collecting funds?

Kids Thrive develops and delivers arts-based programs for children across Victoria.  

Primary school children aged 8-12 in vulnerable communities are learning how to rise not fall through the gaps to be resilient young leaders and change agents in their communities.

Children take their new creative life skills learned in our programs to tackle issues arising from disadvantage and trauma, giving them the best chance to imagine and apply a more positive way of being in the world.

Our evidence based Kids as Catalyst program is evaluated by the Jack Brockhoff Child Health and Wellbeing program at the University of Melbourne. Our own evaluations show that children in the program demonstrate a huge lift in school engagement and wellbeing.  

The program is also a finalist in the VicHealth 2017 awards for improving mental wellbeing.
