The Big Issue



Share Profile

The Big Issue Classroom is a social enterprise initiative of The Big Issue, which provides homeless and disadvantaged Australians with work, allowing them to earn an income, regain confidence, and move on with their lives. Login to The Big Issue Classroom’s online workshops to provide students with a real-life insight into homelessness, marginalisation and disadvantage, as experienced by thousands of Australians every night. In all workshops, a specialist facilitator challenges stereotypes about homelessness and explains how The Big Issue helps people reconnect with the community. We then share a personal story of homelessness. For secondary students, this is a first-hand account from someone who has experienced homelessness personally. For primary students, we share an interactive illustrated version. Every workshop booked provides work for a disadvantaged Australian person, making The Big Issue Classroom truly ‘A Classroom Experience That Makes a Difference.’ Both primary and secondary workshops are available. Please specify which workshop you would like. For a list of workshops, please visit our website www.thebigissue.org.au/the-big-issue-classroom-about/
