Welcome to the Term 3 edition of our newsletter. It's been a whirlwind of activity, and we're excited to share the incredible journey we've embarked upon over these past few months.
Growth and Outreach
We're delighted to announce that our family has expanded in more ways than one. This term, we welcomed a new addition to our dedicated team, whose passion for our cause has been evident even before she started in the role. This addition promises fresh perspectives and boundless enthusiasm to drive our mission forward. And that's not all. The Standing Tall family is growing stronger and wider as well. We're elated to have three new schools join our ranks, strengthening our presence in the community. These schools bring with them a wave of eager young minds, ready to soak in the wisdom of our incredible mentors. Speaking of mentors, we're thrilled to introduce you to eight remarkable individuals who have joined our program as mentors. Their commitment to shaping the future of our youth is truly commendable, and we can't wait to see the positive impact they'll have on the lives of our mentees.
Community Engagement and Recognition
Our Program Manager had the opportunity to present at the Youth Wellbeing Conversations forum alongside many like-minded local organisations, sharing insights and experiences that are at the heart of our mission.
We're also incredibly grateful for the support we've received from various organisations. Financial support, grants, and generous donations have flowed in, strengthening our ability to make a lasting difference in the lives of the youth we serve. These contributions enable us to expand our reach and provide more opportunities for growth and development.
As we gear up for the upcoming term, we're buzzing with excitement about two events on the horizon. Our Jolly Socks Fundraiser promises to be a heartwarming and impactful initiative that will bring joy and warmth to our community. And, not to be overlooked, our 20th Anniversary Celebration is drawing near, and it's an event you won't want to miss.
