Getting involved


Our aim is to encourage hundreds of schools across Australia to develop an environmental workshop to be delivered in their school and wider community. This is the authentic end point for the Kids Teaching Kids Learning Model. Your school can choose to present a workshop at  a grass roots Kids Teaching Kids Week event or within your own school, or at the flagship Melbourne Water Kids Teaching Kids Conference. Alternatively, if it is your first year you might choose to take students to an event to participate as active audience members and then present the following year. Find out more about upcoming events.

Individuals and Organisations

Individuals and organisations can choose to sponsor an event, volunteer or mentor a group of students. These are very valuable experiences that will enable you to support schools and students involved in the Kids Teaching Kids Program.

Volunteer at an event

We are always looking for volunteers for the Melbourne Water Kids Teaching Kids Conference to assist us over the 2 day event. Some of the larger Kids Teaching Kids Week events are often on the look out for volunteers to help on the day. Fill out the registration form below or contact the office for more information:
