Interchange Outer East provides programs and services to families of children and young adults with disabilities who live in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne. Services include respite care, recreation based services and post school options.
Interchange Outer East provides opportunities for all community members to contribute through a range of volunteering options. Through volunteering community members gain skills, connect with others and contribute to individual’s lives.
Interchange actively works to make connections with other community agencies, businesses and groups to foster a sense of inclusion and to create more opportunities for people to connect with their community.
Interchange are delighted to be able to offer these exciting travel opportunities. We hope to grow this program in coming years and look forward to sharing our experiences with everyone.
USA team at the baseball in LA.
United Youth Media (formerly The Reporters' Academy - Australia) is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing students with skills in media production and communications. UYM aims to make a positive difference in the lives of young people through education, employment and personal development.
Jesse Baker of UYM was chosen to tour with the IOE USA group because of his volunteering, media skills and proven track record over 2 years. This partnership between the organisations not only has benefits for the touring party and IOE, but also for Jesse. He gets to use his media skills but also develop his interpersonal skills as he helps the team navigate its way through 6 jam packed days of activities in Los Angeles. This applied learning opportunity is what 21st century education should look like. A product-based approach which results in a happy partnership with benefits for all individuals and organisations involved.
