Kids Teaching Kids Week is a free, national, peer teaching program that uses the environment as a theme and focus for learning. Students research an environmental topic of interest and then deliver their environmental messages to peers through songs, comedy, dance routines, poems, plays, games and experiments. For over 21 years Kids Teaching Kids has inspired more than 140,000 children across Australia to learn about, care for and respect their local environment.

Kids Teaching Kids helps build resilience in students through fostering high self-esteem and facilitating genuine community connections. During this week thousands of students across Australia will teach each other and their community about local environmental issues.

The program is open to all Australian schools: government, Catholic and independent. 

Funding available

Thanks to sponsorship from Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, we have grants available to assist Victorian schools to get involved. Grants can be used to cover costs associated with teacher relief, travel, resources, venue hire and catering.
