Literacy for Life Foundation

We are an Aboriginal-run charity that trains local people to deliver literacy classes in their communities. We use an innovative campaign approach that has been adopted in locations around the world with great success - since 2012, we’ve been proving it works in Australia too.

We also know lifting adult literacy levels in a community leads to a cascade of positive impacts. In fact, lifting adult literacy levels in Aboriginal communities has the potential to be the game-changer in tackling Indigenous disadvantage.

We are seeking a Campaign Project Officer to join our dedicated team. The Campaign is a Pilot to adapt our Campaign Model to a Corrections environment at a facility in the greater Sydney area.

  • Developing and implementing a 100-hour learning program to assist consolidating and embedding of the basic literacy acquired
  • Networking across the Corrections community to sustain support for the pilot
  • Establishing and maintaining a Campaign Steering Group within the Corrections Facility
  • Supervising all inmate Campaign staff and supporting their capacity development in their role/s
  • Maintaining and reporting key Campaign data 
  • Providing progress reports to the National Campaign Manager
  • Other duties as required by the Executive Director



  • Commitment to advancing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander adult education
