The iCan program assists Sudanese students to reach their full potential at school through high level tutoring and one on one mentoring, enabling the students to gain skills for further study and possible employment. Students gain life skills including punctuality, reliability, commitment and communication required to be independent learners and active members of society.
The iCan Scholarship program works with refugee youth from the Darfur and Nuba Mountains regions of Sudan and are currently studying years 11 and 12 in Melbourne. The program aims to assist those students in reaching their potential in school studies and to gain entry into tertiary or further study. Tutoring sessions are run for English and one other subject, along with regular one-to-one mentoring sessions.
The program assists these youths with creating study and employment pathways for after school. The sessions are held weekly on Sundays and tuition is provided by the best tutors (who volunteer their time but who normally charge out at approx. $150 an hour!) at Caulfield Campus of Monash University.
