It Takes a Village to Raise a Child

The School Volunteer Program of the ACT (SVPACT) recognises that some students in the ACT Education System would benefit from having an adult mentor to assist them.

SVPACT recruits volunteer mentors who are committed to helping students who are struggling. With support these students can improve their skills and gain confidence.
