We are working with children and experts to evolve education, and meet the needs of the future.
Alithia Inc. is a registered charity that will provide a space for re-imagining and re-examining learning. Our foundation begins with contemporary scientific understandings of child development, neuroscience and communication techniques. With an understanding of the how the brain is wired we can begin to support a learning experience that equips children with the tools, skills and abilities to continue to learn, adapt and contribute to a rapidly changing world.
Alithia aims to launch a unique learning space in January 2019. This will be the world's first Young Innovators Hub (YIH) where children are encouraged to instigate projects, develop ideas together and put them into action, using collaborative innovation and communication techniques. In addition skilled mentors and facilitators will run various workshops and hands-on actives (STEAM, creative, cultural, environmental, educational and holistic).
We remove the time-restrictions and the parameters put in place by 20th Century perspective on education; we are offering a space to families and the global community where we can evaluate, research and showcase what a new approach to learning looks like. To cultivate the skills that will be needed for the future, children need to have their ideas and curiosities valued.
Alithia Learning will work closely with funding bodies, researchers and the parents to document the issues, approaches, learning journey, and overall development. We will work collaboratively with experts and academics to publish information, research results and articles that will increase awareness and understanding of alternative models of education in Australia and the world.

We believe in Prevention
Alithia Learning was formed in response to research on anxiety and behaviours that underlie many social issues. Major factors lie in the way we interact and the way we currently approach education.
It is time to put the knowledge from decades of studies into action and use that as the building blocks for something new.
We will work with children aged 5-12, as these are the years when an individual's perception of themselves in an academic and social setting is formed. Their internal voice is developing, creating the scaffolding for future learning, motivation and passion.
With our support, families can be supported in their efforts to raise children who communicate and collaborate with others on a respectful and compassionate level, creating positive social change. We provide an opportunity of creating significant change in the way learning and the socialisation of children is approached.
Alithia Learning is open for investment and we are taking applications from interested researchers.
Alithia is financed entirely by donations from individuals and organizations who support the cause. All members of the Board of Directors are volunteers, who receive no financial remuneration for their work for the Alithia. Donations to Alithia go to the establishment and running of the world's first Young Innovators Hub.
What we're doing, why it's important, and where your money will go.
