What’s so good about the Change Through Action programme?
The programme offers students the opportunity to take leadership, work as part of a team and make a positive contribution to their school and society.
Change Through Action was developed specifically for young people 16-18 years in School and Parish based groups.
All you need to get going are 6 – 12 young people and an interested teacher or Chaplain to assist them along with a room to meet.
The programme material contains information and discussion plans on many issues relating to the lives of young people. The issue sheets are informative and user friendly and have been written in consultation with young people (the resources will be updated regularly).
