Challenge

Although everyone has equal value, not everyone has equal opportunities. It is an unfortunate fact that many families in New Zealand have lived with multi-generational poverty, and as such, have not had the resources, networks and experience (of higher education and professional careers) to build a ladder to to escape the poverty trap. Especially now, when a good education (in both academic and life skills) is crucial to securing gainful employment, we are seeing growing inequality.

Solution

Using an evidence-based, whole-child approach, we work with Kiwi kids for up to 15 years, from their first years at school until they move on to tertiary study or employment. We provide wraparound services and do whatever it takes to keep each of our Dreamers on track - because we know that giving kids access to the support and resources they need will lead to improved academic and life success. This programme is based on the model proven over 40 years in the US serving over 18,000 children.

Long-Term Impact

Our mission is to build a long-term partnership between students, families, schools and community to ensure life success. Primary Objective: To forge a pathway into tertiary education and employment for each and every participating child, regardless of their family's social or financial circumstances. Secondary Objective: Produce high-quality research that can help inform future government policy, by demonstrating that long-term and intensive intervention is cost-effective and scalable.
