Aiming High VCE Support Program specifically targets young people in the wider Hume area completing their VCE, years 11 and 12. The program offers these students who care about their studies in-depth support with tutors and time to collaborate with like-minded students.
Young people come into the program with lots of questions about school work but they leave with so much more than just knowing how to write an essay or unpack a chemistry problem. Aiming High opens up the opportunity to learn about university life, applying for part time jobs, building communication and organisational skills and so much more. Often these are questions that the young people didn’t even realise they had.
The program runs weekly study sessions in Broadmeadows and Craigieburn throughout the VCE year and features regular guest speakers and workshops, as well also hosting industry-based excursions during the holidays. Aiming High adds another protective layer of care for young people during some of the toughest years of their schooling. It’s a program that is much more about just tutoring.
Through the program, students are supported to gain their best results and access places in tertiary study. In the seven years Aiming High has been running, more than 200 participants have been involved with the program and the majority have gone on to achieve places in tertiary institutions. Some former students have returned as tutors and speakers with the program, further enhancing a culture of academic achievement for young people in Broadmeadows and surrounding areas.
