The Dandenong Education program has been running for over 10 years. It is a free service that specialises in offering weekly social, emotional and academic support to students from all walks of life. Over 50 volunteers work each week with up to 150 students from backgrounds that include refuges, new migrants and disadvantaged families. The program is framed through the theory of a “growth mindset” and runs every Saturday morning during government school terms. During Covid restrictions the program has moved online and is running twice weekly on Tuesday and Thursday form 3.45-5pm.
