Community and Access

Julian Thompson working with ACO Move participants

At the heart of our Schools and Community Program are our many partnerships with small and medium organisations and other key state and national organisations. 

Our partnership programs allow us to sustain ongoing engagement with communities all over Australia, ensuring that the experiences that we offer are meaningful and provide long-lasting benefits to students and schools.
