Supporting disadvantaged young Australians

For one in seven Australian children and young people growing up in poverty* it can limit their choices, opportunities and outcomes in life.





How your donation helps our kids.

$100 provides:

a safe environment for them to spend time with a mentor, and have conversations that they don’t feel comfortable having at home.

$50 provides:

an opportunity for them to develop their communication skills with a mentor, so they can feel valued and speak confidently with their peers.

$29 provides:

time with a mentor to improve upon basic reading skills to boost their confidence and learning ability at school.

Your contribution will go directly to support another young person and a win for the Learning Ground Program. All donations are fully tax-deductible.



See how Chain Reaction has transformed the lives of over 600 young people and their families through the learning ground program

Over the past 10 years, Chain Reaction’s programs have helped young people and families :

  • keep out of prison and prevent them from leading lives of crime.
  • become leaders and influencers within their school.
  • get and keep jobs to provide for their family.
  • learn to be a positive contributor to their community.
  • make a choice to lead a more positive way of life.
