We’ve got a story of change that’s lit up the world since 2005, one kid at a time. It’s a simple idea, mentoring.

It’s a proven model to end inequality and bring the powerful and powerless together, cost-effectively and at scale.

We've ended educational inequality

We do that by building mentoring bridges between universities and high schools, between the powerful and the powerless, the haves and the have nots. We know that our fiery and intuitive brand of mentoring ends the cycle of disadvantage by permanently changing mindsets. Based in Redfern, Australia, our operation runs across campuses worldwide.

We’re cost-effective

For every $1 invested, $8.90 return

We're scalable

What started as a simple idea working with 25 mentees at the University of Sydney is now a global movement of change through mentoring, fueled by university students, and the model is set for rapid expansion till 2025.
