Thanks to the support of Medibank’s ahm office in Wollongong, The Smith Family will soon be opening an after school learning centre in Bellambi. As part of their intensive leadership program ‘Managing with Purpose’, the ahm corporate team took part in the Million Dollar Challenge – an initiative to raise $10,000 for the Smith Family.
Wollongong team member Robert Bujaroski worked diligently with his team to run various auctions, raffles, events and receive financial donations whilst using the skills they had acquired during their leadership program such as project management, budgeting and people management.
‘’It was great to see how willing people were to get behind an initiative that will help disadvantaged Australian children get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves,’’ he said.
The Learning Club will operate once a week after school and volunteer tutors will donate their time and expertise to support students with their homework, confidence and general literacy and numeracy skills.
