Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME)
AIME links Indigenous secondary school students to universities through outreach and personal mentoring. This partnership helps Deakin to build aspiration for higher education in young Indigenous Australians.
Ardoch Youth Foundation
This partnership supports Geelong schools through the Ardoch Literacy Buddies® Program (Grade 6) as well as the Learning Through Lunch program. The program helps students develop literacy, social, and life skills that support their capacity for full participation in community and professional life.
Foundation for Young Australians
Deakin Partners with the Foundation for Young Australians to deliver the FutureMe program, helping Year 9 students to imagine themselves in the Future World of Work.
The collaboration with headspace for the Grade 5 'Make your Own Mind' co-facilitated workshops provides an additional knowledge base that focuses on cognitive skill development as an important part of building aspiration.
The Smith Family
We partner with The Smith Family through its Learning for Life Program to pursue our common commitment to improving educational opportunities for young Australians from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Deakin's community engagement
Deakin has forged meaningful connections with local and international communities, striving to make a positive difference to the areas we serve.
