We believe that you do not have to be rich to be a philanthropist; it is about strategic giving – whether it is in time, resources or money – for the greater good. We are extremely excited about sharing this message with the younger generation as well as teachers around Australia.
Agents for Change is a tailor made educational program for schools to inspire and help shape future leaders. By fostering the values and ideals associated with philanthropy, our program will help create a positive context for an entire generation of young Australians, giving them the exposure and opportunities to take up responsibilities, learn leadership skills and, ultimately, make a difference in the world.
Agents for Change is customised to your schools needs, areas of study, curriculum, and timetable. We offer workshops for students ranging from 1 hour through to a unit based project that is implemented over a term.
From our extensive research and practice in this area, we have identified that children between the ages of 5 to 15 years have an emerging sense of self and are at an age that is appropriate for growth and achievement through new challenges. We have seen that kids quickly understand the essence of social enterprise and innovation and are driven to use this passion to change society for the better.
