ABCN’s immediate response to the COVID-19 pandemic was to support students most at risk of falling behind in their education during the period when students were forced to learn from home.

Our emergency response was two-pronged:

  1. Partnering with Optus to distribute free SIM cards to hundreds of students who had limited or no access to the internet.
  2. Working with more than a dozen of our member companies to get donated laptops to 1,300 students nationwide.

We are also piloting new ways of connecting our mentors and students through video exchanges and career talks. And we are transforming many of our core programs to digital formats.
