Social Ventures Australia (SVA) is a not-for-profit organisation that works with partners to alleviate disadvantage – towards an Australia where all people and communities thrive.
SVA influence systems to deliver better social outcomes for people by learning about what works in communities, helping organisations be more effective, sharing our perspectives and advocating for change.
SVA do this through our work in Programs, Impact Investing, Policy and Advocacy and Consulting.
SVA’s The Connection program supports exceptional school leaders to build great education. School leaders have a very important role to play in the lives of their students and communities. Great school leaders create conditions that enable both outstanding education and successful social outcomes for each and every student. This is particularly vital in lower socioeconomic regions.
The Connection brings together highly experienced educators and emerging leaders within a collaborative framework, exposing school leadership teams to best practice and innovative thinking from all over the world.
By connecting, leveraging and supporting these ‘bright spots’ in the Australian education system, The Connection gives school leaders the chance to address common challenges and drive evidence- informed action in their schools.
