Young Change Agents is a social entrepreneurship program for 10-18 year olds that helps our youth see problems as opportunities.
It provides them with the tools to think creatively, build skills in critical thinking and communication and empowers them to believe that they are good enough to be entrepreneurs, leaders and world changers.
Best of all, it's fun and exciting to learn how to create a social start-up. We use tools and techniques utilised in real start-up incubators and just like a lean start-up, there will be limited time to get stuff done! Our programs run either in 3-5 day blocks or as 10 week programs (2 hours a week).
Young Change Agents is a program that can be run in schools, as a holiday program or for a specific youth group over a weekend.
Some of the programs we have run over the past 18 months include:
- City of Sydney holiday programs
