Volunteer Tutor Program

Helping Sick Children Learn

In Australia many children with long term illness are falling behind academically. We're on a mission to help. Here's how.

Catch the Clouds is a volunteer tutor program, matching suitable teachers willing to provide their time and expertise to children in need. The program aims to help children catch up with their studies so that they do not fall so far behind that they cannot adjust when they return to school.

“Catch The Clouds is a wonderful organisation providing volunteer qualified teachers to tutor children with a chronic illness at no cost. This enables children to have the opportunity to catch up with work they have missed due to being unwell/in hospital.

Thank you Catch The Clouds. It’s wonderful how you are providing a way for children with a chronic illness, who have missed lots of school, to be able to access free tutoring from a qualified teacher."
