We believe in communities of equal opportunity. Every person should have the chance to fulfil their potential, have access to a supportive network and be fearless.

Founded in 2015, The DREAM Project provides a source of inspiration and motivation for students and families from refugee backgrounds to integrate with the Australian community. We do this by helping them with their studies, preparing them for work and just being their friend.

Volunteer Testimonies

Tutoring is a great experience because you are working with students who are very keen to learn and are extremely grateful for your help.

It is truly heartwarming to be able to assist these teenagers in some way so that they are able to feel like there are people who are taking the time to help and care for them.

I volunteer in DREAM because I like to have new experiences. It will make me open to new ideas and perhaps help me with writing . I also get to make new friends and I like to help people.
