From little things, big things grow.
12 Buckets is a grass roots, Perth-based charity that strives to equip students in need of mentoring with the skills, support and connections they need to build a strong future.
Our locally grown 12 Buckets program relies solely on community and business support as we endeavour to develop and have a positive impact on independent young people. This is achieved by contributing to the stability of their community through honed skills and generosity.
