All kids deserve the chance to get involved so we run programs from art to sport to make sure none of our kids miss out.
We deliver a great range of programs that include:
Variety Just Like You
With the aim to stop bullying and celebrate people of all abilities the Variety Just Like You program educates kids and build awareness of people with a disability. We currently run this program in Sydney, Newcastle, Central Coast, and the ACT.
Variety Just Like You is designed for primary school students’ specific year groups and mapped against the Australian Curriculum. The program is delivered as two face-to-face workshops for three separate stages (Year 1 & 2, Year 3 & 4, Year 5 & 6).
Apply to have Variety Just Like You come to your school or find out more information via the website.
Activate Inclusion Sports Days (AISD) are aimed at students aged 5 to 18 with mental health, learning difficulties, physical, intellectual and sensory disabilities. The students come to a central location to have a go in a fun and inclusive environment.
Delivered by Sport NSW in conjunction with Variety, the AISD program provides adaptive sport and recreation programs to build core skills and confidence for sustainable physical activity. Each AISD event involves a range of sports for students to try, with specialised coaching and adaptive equipment.
There are a number of Variety Activate Inclusion Sports Day happening throughout the year, find out more details on the Sport NSW website.
The Variety Kids Choir is a fully inclusive place for kids aged 9-18 to develop their musical ability, and enjoy the experience of performing.
We’ve brought in the experts from Big Music to develop a unique program that strives to enrich the lives of members through friendship and self-confidence and to provide musical mentoring to talented kids who may not otherwise have the means to develop their talent.
All kids aged 9-18 with a love of singing are encouraged to join us. And the best part is it’s fully inclusive, so open to kids of all abilities and backgrounds.
The Variety Alopecia Areata Adventure Camp will be a fantastic opportunity for kids 18 and under living with Alopecia to make friends, learn about the condition and – most importantly – have a very fun time. The camp is free for kids with AA, including flights, meals, accommodation, and activities.
