Youth Off The Streets is a community organisation offering a continuum of care to those aged 12 to 22 who are facing challenges of homelessness, drug and alcohol dependency, exclusion from school, neglect and abuse in NSW, Australia.
Youth Off The Streets’ programs focus on creating safety, supporting growth and opening up options for young people. One of the ways they do this is through the Street Walk Program which makes connections with young people experiencing homelessness in Sydney. The staff and volunteers help young people access the services they need including drug and alcohol treatment, counselling, accommodation, education and other Youth Off The Streets programs. In 2015/16, the Street Walk Program was run for 191 nights, contacting 1,200 young people, with 1,137 instances of blankets, clothes and food handed out and 297 young people referred or transported to other services.

40K PLUS is a social enterprise working to deliver quality education to children living in restricted village environments in India and Cambodia through the innovative use of technology.
Currently, the PLUS program uses tablets to teach English to primary-aged government school children. Each Each PLUS Pod can teach up to 50 government primary school children attending an intensive 75 minute daily English class. The class is run by a local community member, typically a passionate local mother with 10th Grade education and only basic English. This PLUS Facilitator is not responsible for teaching, but for motivating and inspiring students to learn. This means that learning English is not restricted by the knowledge of the teacher, overcoming a key barrier in rural education. 40K PLUS have strong evaluation processes in place and have proven that the PLUS program results in 2.5 additional years of learning in literacy for 40K PLUS students when compared to a control group.
