The Mix it up program provides tailored leadership, civics and employability training for year 10 to 12 students selected for their interest in law-related future careers.
Students from all Victorian schools can register for the July and November workshops. Additional elements are offered to schools in the Brimbank Local Government area.
The program will develop knowledge and leadership skills in participants, equipping them to apply these back into their school communities.
The aim of the program is to increase career aspirations and employment pathways for culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) and newly arrived high school students, and at the same time, encourage intercultural connections between participants, schools and their communities.
The expected outcomes of the program include:
- careers guidance, opportunities and networks
- greater familiarity with legal and civic institutions in the context of a multi-cultural society
- ongoing inter-cultural and inter-school connections.
