Recently we’ve had some passionate young people taking the lead in their school communities to talk about homelessness, break down stigma, and raise much needed funds for their local services. Our Schools for Change program helps to connect studnets, staff and schools to the topic of homelessness through creative, flexible, and evidence based activities and resources.
Homelessness week is around the corner in August (Monday 7 to Sunday 13) with the theme of ‘it’s time to end homelessness.’ Schools for Change is helping classrooms and communities across Australia to learn, engage, and advocate during this important week.
While StreetSmart has been engaging with schools for years, our new program Schools for Change, has recently launched as an exciting offering to school communities across Australia. The program incorporates free, age-appropriate educational resources like curriculum aligned lessons with fundraising support to engage and empower school communities.
