Ardoch Youth Foundation is a charity that provides education support for children and young people in disadvantaged communities. Our primary objective is to build the capacity of schools, early years services and communities to deliver targeted programs that will improve learning and wellbeing outcomes for children and young people in areas of high need and enable them to access learning, stay in school and reach their full potential.

Our Programs

Programs include our Early Years volunteer program, classroom volunteers, music programs and Ardoch's Literacy Buddies®, Numeracy Buddies and Learning through Lunch corporate volunteering programs.
