empowering & mobilising young changemakers in education
*Applications close 21/09/2020
EDUCATION IS THE #1 CONCERN FOR YOUNG AUSTRALIANS
WE HEAR YOU & UNDERSTAND THAT
The world is innovating and growing more complex every day, however formal education hasn't innovated along with it.
You want to learn more practical skills to be prepared for the future of work and life.
You want more say in what you learn and how you learn it.
You want an education that is effective, relevant and relatable.
Schools in regional and disadvantaged communities are being left behind.

YOU WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
We're not interested in your grades. We want to bring together young people who want to positively impact the world around them.
OPEN & ACCEPTING
We want young people who are open and accepting of other people, their cultures and ideas. We also want young people who are open to learning new things and having their perspectives widened.
DON'T LET DISADVANTAGE BE A BARRIER
We highly encourage young people from regional, migrant, refugee, indigenous and low socio economic backgrounds to apply! This program is free to take part in and we would love to hear the unique perspectives you have to offer.
