WHAT WE DO

The Achievers Club is a charity that helps to give students from low socio-economic backgrounds in Western Australia the opportunity to be the best they can be.  We do this by: 

  • providing free educational support in the form of weekly out-of-school mentoring and tuition for selected children (currently from primarily refugee families) who are experiencing learning and/or adjustment difficulties;

  • working with teachers and parents to maximise the support given to these students;

  • offering other activities from time to time to enhance the students’ educational and personal growth, such as trips to Scitech or the Perth Zoo;

  • building self-confidence, trust and a sense of achievement in the students’ personal and educational lives; and

  • where appropriate, supporting students who wish to pursue scholarships for future studies.​

OUR MISSION

To work directly with students from low socio-economic backgrounds to educate, inspire and empower them to set and achieve their academic goals.

MENTOR SNAPSHOTS

Danny McEvoy, President and Mentor:

 

"... Helping to build this organisation into a sustainable, effective and caring Club is very exciting... Our Board and Mentors are outstanding people who are determined to provide our students with support and guidance to be the best people and students they can be. What we are doing today will provide these great kids with tools they can take into the rest of their lives.

 

I can't think of a better way to spend part of one’s retirement and Saturday mornings than working with outstandingly generous, talented people and special kids who are prepared to work hard to improve their school grades."
