School engagement programs
School engagement programs at the Brotherhood of St Laurence allow young people to learn about the issues of poverty, disadvantage, social inequality and injustice through practical hands-on experiences.
Our goal is to engage, motivate and inspire the next generation to become involved in tackling these issues. The Brotherhood of St Laurence conducts a range of school engagement programs for students of all ages.
Urban Camp is a three to five day inner-city experience in Melbourne that allows students to understand the issues facing disadvantaged Australians through engaging with Brotherhood communities.
