Changemaker..... An Entrepreneurial Challenge to change the world!


Chanemaker is our new and exciting 2 day social entrepreneurship workshop for 8-13 yr olds who want to make a difference in the world!


From student to Social entrepreneur


The workshops kick off with a meet & greet and presentation from one of Australia's most succesful social entrepreneurs.  Our students will learn how they got started and how they have used business to make an impact in the world.  
Becoming a social pioneer
Once students have had a dose of inspiriation they will be challenged to find a social problem either in their local community, or internationally, and using business as a force fr good- find a way to solve it.  The Project Gen Z team of experts will take students through a journey to discover passions, identify purpose and show them that anything can be achieved with a great vision.

The Changemaker Challenge


Then in teams our students will take part in 'The Dare to Change the World Challenge', a FUN and experiential social entreprise business challenge that will see them develop thier idea, and launch a mini business to make a difference in just 2 days!


Each student will have a role, and will work together to build a social enterprise idea to change the world.  At the end of the second day teams go head to head in a live pitch off event to present thier ideas to the Project Gen Z judges.
