Courage to Care brings important messages to Victorians, in particular, secondary school students, through a free travelling program and interactive multimedia exhibition. Next stop Warragul.

This dynamic program uses stories from the Holocaust and the extraordinary acts of ordinary people, Holocaust heroes known as Righteous Among the Nations and heroes of other genocides, to educate Victorians about consequences of unfettered racism, prejudice, bullying and bystander behaviour. Participants are empowered to be Upstanders in the face of injustice.

The Warragul Program will engage and deliver this powerful message to more than 1500 secondary students from 14 different schools across the region. Over the past 26 years, more than 130 000 Victorian students have participated in this award-winning program that applies directly to the national school curriculum, expanding students’ understanding of their classwork while inspiring them to create a more open-minded society.

The program is delivered throughout Victoria by a team of trained volunteers.
At each Exhibition, Courage to Care honours a Local Hero, an ordinary member of the local community who has taken positive action as an Upstander. Individuals are nominated for their acts of selflessness and moral or personal courage.

 

When:  Aug-19 to Aug-30

Where: Marist-Sion College, 165 Burke St, Warragul
