On returning home to Melbourne in 2003, Dr Hollingworth renewed his relationship with John Cheetham and was excited by the work he was doing with disadvantaged and talented young people in a pilot program managed by the Student Achievement Centre.
The initial pilot project was coming to an end and refinements were being made for future expansion. Having worked for much of his life with disadvantaged young people, Dr Hollingworth felt he could contribute to this new organisation which was providing a unique program in a highly professional way.
Dr Hollingworth later joined the board and served as Chair from 2007 until 2017.
As Ambassador, he continues to enjoy working with a group of committed people who bring their particular skills to the organisation.
