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. The Big Issue Classroom workshops are a unique educational experience providing school groups with a real-life insight into homelessness and disadvantage, as experienced by thousands of Australians every night.

Featuring the story of a guest speaker who has experienced homelessness, this workshop engages students through discussion and activities. The session challenges stereotypes about homelessness, and prompts students to consider their own choices and the supports available to them in the community.  Students will be encouraged to think about the future of their communities, and the actions they can take to promote social justice. 

All students and teachers who participate in a workshop will receive access to resources and study materials.
