We are on a mission to give kids the smarts to deal with the hard stuff.

Why should you support
Life Smart Kids?
Prevention is better than cure. 

Education has a critical role to play in equipping students with the life skills needed to succeed in a global, complex and ever changing world.

We reimagine education so every young person can have the life skills to thrive in a world of constant change.

Saving young lives since 1982.

Pioneering prevention strategies in Drugs and Alcohol Education. 

Working on the streets of Kings Cross through the Wayside Chapel, our founder the late Ted Noffs witnessed young lives devastated by drugs and alcohol on a daily basis.

This experience convinced him that Australia needed a national health and wellbeing education program to empower children to make safer and healthier life choices.

Today, we still continue to innovate with our BIG CHANGE project
To help give kids the smarts to deal with the hard stuff.

We now work closely with Department of Education, Victoria and our 4 key principles are based on:

  • Amplify Student Voice
  • Amplify Learner Agency
  • Build Teacher Capacity 
  • Developing Life Smart Kids through a child centered, life skills approach

This year we have launched our new Healthy Harold Heroes program - a groundbreaking program in project based action learning.

Life Education Victoria is a registered company under the Corporations Act and holds a charitable fundraising authority under section 16 of the Charitable Fundraising Act 1991. The foundation is endorsed as a deductible gift recipient according to the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 and has DGR1 status as a Health Promotion Charity. 

Our Registered Charity Tick from the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) aims to give reassurance to the public that we are transparent and accountable. We rely on your donations and volunteering to ensure we can continue our vital work, so we want you to know your support is making a difference. 

When you see this logo, it means the charity is registered with the ACNC so the public can easily find out what they do, who their beneficiaries are, how they are governed and how they manage their finances.
