Learning for Life is The Smith Family’s core program. It provides almost 60,000 young Australians in need with long-term educational support in three ways. Each child on the program receives:
1. Financial support for school essentials, like uniforms and books.
2. Personal support for the child and their family, to help children stay motivated at school, complete their education and go on to further training or work.
3. Practical support through their extra learning and mentoring programs – tailored to each child’s needs.
This proven combination of financial, personal and practical support empowers young people to harness education and build skills to unlock their true potential.
Also, The Smith Family’s Digital Learning Essentials program helps bridge the digital divide by providing students on the Learning for Life program with a laptop, internet access, digital skills and technical support.
