Our Outreach and school programs

We collaborate with primary and high school students, teachers and parents, and the Macleay Valley community to improve education outcomes. Our aim is to help people realise their aspirations and awareness towards higher education, and providing them with the knowledge and skills to achieve their career goals.

We offer out space to current HSC students to study before and after school. Reach out to our Centre Manager to find out more.

WINGS Mentoring Program

We are giving students in the Macleay Valley the opportunity to learn more about your future career firsthand from people working in industry.

Over a year you will attend a series of 4 workshops across the year with your mentor as well as complete 6-8 days of work experience at their mentor organisation. Workshop topics will include emotional intelligence, effective communication, goal setting and more.

The program is designed to assist with your growth and transition into the workforce in the local community.


This project brings together ANU students and local students at CUC Macleay Valley to support Macleay Valley’s year 7/8 schools students in reflecting on their strengths and how they have used them to navigate their transition from primary to secondary school. We will visit each of Kempsey’s two high schools for a day, facilitating multiple sessions each day. Through this, we aim to build year 7/8 students’ confidence and self-efficacy to navigate future transitions and changes.
