Teaching young people about the issues of poverty, disadvantage, social inequality and injustice is crucial in engaging, motivating and inspiring the next generation to become involved in tackling these issues.
We are currently running two schools engagement programs for secondary school students.
Our Urban Camp is a three-day inner-city camp that allows secondary school students to discover the reasons for poverty and disadvantage first-hand.
Our Telling the Story program provides opportunities for secondary students to spend time with some of the Brotherhood’s disadvantaged aged-care residents.
Our How Does This Thing Work? program provides opportunities for secondary students to spend time with some of the Brotherhood’s disadvantaged clients and to teach them how to use their mobile phones.
