Alithia Inc. is a Public Benevolent Institute, a community-run charity, with DGR status. Alithia provides solutions for children in need of an innovative and therapeutic environment.

Due to the pandemic, the main Alithia Hub for 6-12 year olds is on hold for 2022.  Alithia Inc. partners with like-minded organisations on the Mid-North Coast to provide an array of programs. Please contact us for information on programs for 3-5 year olds and after-school programs for 6-12 year olds.

  The Alithia Learning Hub aims to build a love of learning, a sense of capability and positive connections through a variety of hands-on activities and workshops including collaborative innovation, emotional resilience, creative thinking and academics

Given the problems that arise in rural low-socio economic areas, Alithia's core focus is to ensure the mental health and well-being of young children, preventing them from becoming youths at risk and ensuring they become meaningful and contributing members within society.
Alithia meets the needs of children requiring social and emotional support, those that are neuro-diverse (Autistic Spectrum, ADHD, Aspergers), those from minority groups (including Australia's indigenous), those experiencing learning difficulties and hardships, and those considered to be in need of a nurturing, creative environment and opportunities.

Our Philosophy

Positive communication tools and unique ways of learning are at the core of our philosophy. 

Our Mentors

Our wonderful mentors come from all different walks of life. We focus on facilitating discovery learning where mentors walk beside learners, not in front. 

Young Innovators Hub

A supportive place for Alithia children to innovate, discover and develop holistically.

A unique difference:

At the core, Alithia is a set of positive communication tools. These techniques create a trusting space where people feel accepted and supported. Within this non-judgemental environment, participants can build a sense of purpose and capability, while being supported on their own unique learning journey. Every individual has a unique way of learning and of approaching the world. Our learning space is flexible and adaptive to empower children from a young age.

Standing still is the fastest way of moving backwards in a rapidly changing world. - Lauren Baccal
