Alice Sloan Trust forms valued partnerships with organisations and individuals to provide opportunities for young people to participate in a range of pursuits.

THE ANNUAL ALICE SLOAN EXPEDITION

Commencing in 2007, the Alice Sloan Expedition takes place each year in January.

In partnership with the Alexandra Secondary College (ASC) and the Outdoor Education Group (OEG), the Alice Sloan Trust provides funding and in-kind support for a 10 day expedition for Year 11 female students.

Titled “Our Mountains Our Journey”, the students participate in a range of challenging activities in the Alexandra – Eildon region of central Victoria. Activities include: camping, bushwalking, rafting and cycling.

Previous Expeditions

The expedition provides the platform for participation in the two-year Alice Sloan Youth Leadership program.

ALICE SLOAN YOUTH LEADERSHIP PROGRAM

Following completion of the 10-day expedition, students are invited to participate in a range of leadership activities over the final two years of their secondary schooling.

Designed to foster personal development and leadership skills, the students take part in fundraising, peer support, volunteer work and public speaking

Along with the Trust, ASC and OEG, this program is supported by many organisations within and outside the Murrundini Shire, including Alexandra Rotary, Toorak College in Mount Eliza, Murrundindi Shire, Marysville Triangle and the Cathedral Primary School cluster.

OUTDOOR EDUCATION AND PLAY PROGRAMS

Since 2013 the Alice Sloan Trust has funded a camp for all children in Grade 3 and 4 who attend Aldercourt Primary School in Frankston. In-kind support is provided by Alice Sloan Trust volunteers as well as students of Toorak College.  The camp offers children, who may not otherwise have this opportunity with three days of fun and adventure-filled activities.

Previous camps

Outdoor activities at Mornington Park Pre-school are supported by the purchase of bright yellow sun hats so children can play outside in all weather.

HEADS TOGETHER FOR ABI FAMILY CAMP

The Trust offers financial and in-kind support to enable Heads Together for ABI to provide camps and other fun activities to support families and young people with an Acquired Brain Injury.

HEALSVILLE L – P PROGRAM

In partnership with the Healesville Indigenous Community Services Association (HICSA), the Alice Sloan Trust purchased a car to operate an L-P Drivers Education program.

Young learners partner with volunteer instructors to help them achieve their 120 hours of supervised driving experience in the donated car.

Volunteers offer their time to support the young learners and build up a relationship to support their driving development.
