Would your school like the chance to gain deeper insight, empathy and understanding into another person’s journey by listening to their story?
Here at Jesuit Social Services, our speakers are social justice advocates who come from diverse backgrounds, communities and cultures. They’ll share with you their personal experiences of:
- seeking asylum and refugee settlement in Australia,
and much more......
Within a social justice theme, we also offer:
- Indigenous/ East Timorese/ West Papuan history and culture sessions,
- Storytelling workshops,
- lunchtime rap concerts, and
- Hip Hop/ rap writing workshops
Our speakers tailor their presentations to their lived experience, and to the age of the students.
Common themes include resilience, courage, empathy, leadership, empowerment, social justice, diversity and cultural awareness.
And just like our speakers, every presentation is different. Some presentations involve music. All involve both a personal story and a call to action for each member of the audience to contemplate.
For schools, Just Voices speakers offer empowering sessions to inspire students to develop social justice messages. All presentations for schools link to the Australian and Victorian curriculum.
Our speakers present to all year levels and can do single or extended sessions.
