Our vision

12 Buckets has grown from being an Unincorporated Association where a few friends banded together to offer their time, skills and abilities to a local Perth Primary School to becoming a highly regarded and formally recognised children’s charity.

Without Government funding, 12 Buckets delivers its first-class One-to One Mentoring Program to four primary schools in Perth’s northern suburbs.

We envision children having every opportunity to engage in their education and become independent young people who have a sense of belonging and contribute to society through their skills and generosity

What are the 12 Buckets?

Our underlying philosophy, that fullness in life comes when you pour yourself out for others, shapes the 12 Buckets program which is based on the circle of courage.

The Guiding Buckets Model focuses on 12 qualities that have been deemed important for the overall well being of our students. These areas fall under the four categories with three subcategories in each:
