Supporting CORE

Contribute to a legacy of lifelong learning by supporting children and youth in our community with a gift to CORE. Your contributions help us to continue to make a real difference in your community.

How we're helping children

Although CORE Club is an integral part of CORE, it isn't all! CORE also reaches out to children in the community through our partner programs and outreach.

Why what we do is important

Since 2011, the Centre for Outreach Education has been dedicated to proving education support to children in the community who need it the most. Our services fill important gaps for children who aren't able to access support that they need.

As of 2017:

  • Over 700 children in the Victoria community have been supported through CORE.
  • Over 150 undergraduate teacher education and graduate students in the Faculty of Education have gained valuable work experience through working directly with children and youth in CORE programs. 

Thank you!

Thanks to your generous support, CORE is reaching children and youth who need help the most. Donations fund key programs such as CORE Club and CORE Mobile, help fund the development of new outreach programs, and help ensure CORE's future.
