Over 100 KickStart for Kids mentors are currently volunteering in schools around Adelaide. Our mentors spend an hour a week with a child who is at risk of disengaging from the educational system, or who needs a significant adult in their lives. Mentors work with kids during the school term to nurture and develop their self-esteem, getting to know them and encouraging them to work towards a better life for themselves.

All mentors require a DCSI police check and Report of Abuse and Neglect training prior to commencing in a school. If you would like to get involved, please follow the link to help Mentor a child in need.

“Many school children have family issues that they want to talk about and having someone who is exclusively theirs for a while on a regular basis is an irreplaceable support.”
