Together with eLearning partner Peopleplan, Young Change Agents were one of the first recipients of the Women in STEM and Entrepreneurship grants. Over 18 months, Young Change Agents has worked with over 1200 girls across QLD, NSW and the NT and had over 100 teachers participate in our capacity building program.
