For the last 25 years, the Aboriginal Literacy Foundation has been working with Indigenous children and their families in Victoria through its Ballarat tutoring program. This program has been an extraordinary success, helping educate and mentor many thousands of children over this time, many of which have gone on to university and employment. This program is the model for our new Melbourne tutoring sites.

These Melbourne tutoring sites will address a real and growing need to assist the many Indigenous children and their families in Melbourne. With nearly half of all Indigenous Victorians living in the Melbourne area, there is a pressing need to help these families meet the challenges of education and life.

Tutoring takes place in Fitzroy or Collingwood, as well as the Melbourne CBD and we envisage this service will be used by hundreds of children and their families consistently throughout the year.
