School Initiative

What is the Inspire Youth Australia Foundation School Initiative?

The Inspire Youth Australia Foundation is dedicated to supporting youth across NSW. One of the new Community Partnership Programs is the School Initiative, which aims to support local primary and high schools in a variety of ways including expertise, reducing costs and providing funding. The Inspire Youth Australia Foundation is teaming up with Nowchem and its distributors and will be giving back to schools in a variety of ways outlined below.

Who can be involved?

All schools across the Illawarra and South East Region are encouraged to be involved (Wollongong to Eden).

How does the Inspire Youth Australia Foundation School Initiative Work?

At the end of each financial year, Nowchem and its participating distributors will donate 10% of the total profit from each school’s sales to the Inspire Youth Australia Foundation. Schools will then have the opportunity to apply for a funding grant from the Inspire Youth Australia Foundation for use towards educational resources and programs.
