EduTECH and The Smith Family Join Forces to Empower Students Experiencing Disadvantage

EduTECH Australia < 1 mins read

EduTECH, Australia's largest festival of education, joins forces with The Smith Family to champion educational equality.

"EduTECH is proud to support The Smith Family," said Arron Penman, Project Director at EduTECH. "Together, we are dedicated to driving positive change in the education sector and empowering students from disadvantaged backgrounds."

The Smith Family has long been recognised for its work with children and young people impacted by poverty, supporting their education and empowering them to create their own futures. By providing essential resources, access to support programs, opportunities, and personal support, The Smith Family has made a tangible difference in the lives of thousands of students across Australia.

"Our work over many years has shown that stepping in with the right support at the right time increases the likelihood of a young person staying at school, completing Year 12 and going on to further study or work," The Smith Family's CEO Doug Taylor said.

"We're thrilled to work with EduTECH to give even more students the opportunity to make the most of their education."

Through this collaboration, EduTECH and The Smith Family are working hand in hand to develop initiatives focused on teaching, technology integration, and community engagement, all geared toward overcoming educational inequality.

Together, we invite everyone to join us on our mission to unlock the potential of children in need. Every contribution counts in making a difference, one student at a time.
