Young Change Agents is passionate about supporting Australian educators. Our aim is to work alongside educators to strengthen their work, building their capacity in social enterprise and design thinking so they are champions in their communities and beyond. 


We use a four-stage process to build sustainability from the beginning:


  1. Immersion into our program, to build empathy and deeper understanding
  2. Online learning modules and communications platform for educators
  3. Co-facilitation of the program with Young Change Agents to support where needed
  4. Championing our program across theirs and other schools/ contexts


We’d like to recognise some of the many educators who have worked together with us to strengthen youth social entrepreneurship across their regions. We’ll start by firstly recognising two teacher and Department of Education champions in Queensland - both fantastic champions of educator capacity building and youth entrepreneurship!
