Since 2015, more than 100,000 government school students have benefited from being taught by Community Service Year (CSY) volunteers. This program has saved government schools over AU$2M in teachers’ salaries, and that’s a conservative calculation! For every year of our program, a government school on average will save over AU$13,000.
But our alumni don’t stop there. After entering tertiary at 12x the national average, they then go onto start businesses at a rate of around seven per year. This translates into 30 businesses and employing over 250 people directly from our alumni. Are you starting to see the Mawimbi?
