Our Recipients


“I’m delighted to tell you that your investment in me has allowed me to realize my dreams.  In May, I graduated from my law course while last year I graduated from an international studies degree.


Xavier recently came into the Chances office with his Dad to give thanks in person for the financial support Xavier support Xavier received for football fees and equipment under the Connecting Kids with Community Fund recipient.  This fund is currently in hiatus but Chances is very proud of the young people who have benefited over the years.

Xavier had the chance to meet Adelaide footballer Josh Jenkins, who is a past recipient of Chances and now a Chances champion, kicking 7 goals in a recent AFL game.

Xavier was so impressed to know that Chances support may enable him to be just like Josh!


Jasmine began a Bachelor of Business (Events Management) at La Trobe University in 2012. After completing her first year of study in Mildura, Jasmine relocated to Melbourne to complete her 2nd and 3rd years.

To help with her transition to Melbourne, Jasmine was matched with volunteer mentor Olga through the Chances Mentor Program. They have since remained good friends and catch up regularly.

Jasmine is also giving back to community. Recently Jasmine volunteered with a program called ‘I Need Helpers’. Additionally, Jasmine decided to ‘give back’ to Chances by becoming a mentor to a 2015 Chances recipient who is following a similar study path to herself.
