Role Models

Books In Homes Australia > SUPPORTERS > Role Models

Our Role Models volunteer to inspire young readers on the Books in Homes Program by attending Book Giving Assemblies across Australia. Role Models come from all walks of life—Aboriginal Elders, children’s book authors and illustrators, comic book creators and graphic novelists, sports people, firefighters and other emergency services personnel, illusionists, accountants, and many others who represent a multitude of professions.

Get to know some of our Role Models who are listed below. Just CLICK on a photo to visit their respective websites.
