Over the past years, the Change-Maker program has showcased the incredible work being achieved by young Australians. From major projects, to small acts of positivity, we have seen the impact youth can have on their communities.

Activities undertaken by Change-Makers have included, volunteering at their local sporting clubs, supporting seniors in their community, coaching juniors, organising school activities to promote health and well being.
