This learning event is right for you if you are a Year 9 teacher or leader interested in connecting your students with others around the world to help them become active, productive and informed global citizens.


Price is for a school team (one teacher and 4-6 students)                 

The Young Entrepreneurs Program is designed to help prepare Year 9 students to live and work as citizens and future leaders in our increasingly interconnected global community through connecting virtually with other young people from the other side of the world. Through these connections, they will develop an understanding of their place in the world and how they can be leaders and give back to others, and also learn to contribute to society as active, productive, and informed global citizens. During the program, schools have the unique experience of designing their service-learning directly with the internationally acclaimed educator Cathryn Berger Kaye.

The program, to be delivered in Terms 3 and 4 2022, will give students the opportunity to grow their intercultural capability, build new friendships and become involved in a design thinking project that will also develop their resilience and critical and creative thinking skills and enhance some key learning outcomes of the Australian/Victorian curriculum. Students and teachers will engage in meaningful online collaboration, use the design thinking framework as part of a group project, explore the diversity of another country’s culture and participate in interactive online sessions focusing on key global environmental issues such as climate change. This innovative and exciting program leverages technology to connect students around the world virtually, offering a transformative virtual journey on the path to becoming true global citizens.

This Learning Event supports the Year 9 Humanities Curriculum (Australian/Victorian Curriculum) as well as the General Capabilities and Cross-curriculum Priorities and therefore provides opportunities for students to develop the skills required for life-long learning, social development and active and informed citizenship.
