Life Education has been empowering children and young Australians to make safer and healthier choices through education for almost 40 years. They are Australia’s largest non-government provider of drug and health education to children and young people, their families and communities. Delivering essential curriculum-based lessons to empower children to make safer and healthier lifestyle choices, over seven million Australian children have benefited from their programs to date.
Life Education has a vision of generations of healthy young Australians living to their full potential. They believe in our children – in the uniqueness and specialness of each and every one – and they believe they should be empowered to face the issues they encounter every day by making healthy and safe lifestyle choices.
To make this vision a reality, Life Education visits schools around Australia, educating kids from 3 to 17 years of age about a range of important topics that impact them at different times of their lives. Issues like healthy eating, physical activity, bullying, cyber-safety, drugs, alcohol, smoking, and positive communication. Life Education employs specially trained educators to deliver a modular program from state-of-the-art mobile classrooms and use iconic mascot Healthy Harold to help make the learning program fun and memorable.
Life Education Australia visits over 700,000 children, and works with over 24,000 teachers in more than 4,300 schools every year.
Hyundai Help for Kids is a National Partner of Life Education Australia, offering financial support to assist them to deliver their message to school children across Australia through the iconic Healthy Harold program and other initiatives.
