Flare

Flare is a fast paced day of listening, learning and doing. Young people hear from a diverse range of local entrepreneurs before rapidly prototyping their own innovative solutions.

During the morning, students engage with local changemakers on a variety of relevant and topical areas including the entrepreneurial mindset, social enterprise, overcoming challenges, failure and navigating the ‘future of work’.

In the second half of the day, students will rapidly prototype their own innovative, scalable and sustainable solutions that make the world a better place.

By the end of the day, your students will:
  • Have an understanding of design thinking methodology to solve problems, including empathising, ideating, validating, prototyping and pitching.
  • Have developed their capacity to collaborate and project manage efficiently and effectively.
  • Have developed their capacity as storytellers; pitching (and persuading) with purpose.

Spark

This two day, facilitated workshop sparks curiosity, a drive to collaborate with others and a passion for solving problems that matter to your school and local community.

We work with you to co-design the ‘mission’ that students embark on; thus empowering your students to design solutions for contextually relevant school or local community issues.

In just two short days, our experienced and engaging facilitators will take your young people from exploring who they are, and what matters to them, to elevator pitching their own prototyped solution to a panel of school leaders.

By the end of the two days, your students will:
  • Have an understanding of design thinking methodology to solve problems, including emphasising, ideating, validating, prototyping and pitching.
  • Have developed their capacity to lead self and others.
  • Have developed their capacity to collaborate and project manage efficiently and effectively.
  • Have developed their capacity as storytellers; pitching (and persuading) with purpose.

Ignite

Ignite is our high energy, five day workshop that culminates in students pitching their own innovative, scalable and sustainable business solutions to a panel of judges in your school’s very own Showcase Event.

Replacing regular curriculum for a week, our experienced and engaging facilitators begin by having students look inward at personal passions and lived experiences to form teams (up to five) that are united in tackling a common problem.

From here, students use design thinking methodology and cutting edge entrepreneurial tools to ideate, prototype and business model their own innovative, scalable and sustainable business solution.

In the weeks leading up to your program kicking off, we’ll work with your team to mobilise a panel of local entrepreneurial mentors within your school community to support your students during the program and also organise the final day’s ‘Showcase’ and ‘Shark Tank, including helping to secure potential judges.

By the end of the five days, your students will:
  • Have a greater understanding and appreciation of self, including personal passions, interests, values and strengths.
  • Have an understanding of social enterprise, purpose led business and social impact, including impact measurement.
  • Have an understanding of design thinking methodology to solve problems, including empathising, ideating, validating, prototyping and pitching.
  • Have an understanding creating value propositions, conducting market research and ‘The Lean Startup’ methodology.
  • Have developed their capacity to lead self and others.
  • Have developed their capacity to collaborate and project manage efficiently and effectively.
  • Have developed their capacity as storytellers; pitching (and persuading) with purpose.
  • Ultimately, be empowered with the knowledge, skills, processes, and support to stand up; taking action to solve problems that matter to them.

Activate

The only program of its kind in Australia, Activate is an award winning, immersive, in-curriculum unit that can be delivered across one or two terms within a school’s Year 9 or Year 10 English, Business and/or STE(A)M subjects.

The Activate program includes professional development for teaching teams, comprehensive lesson materials (with ‘level up’ and ‘level down’ activities to support differentiation), formative and summative assessment tools that are mapped to Australian Curriculum Achievement Standards, and advice and inspiration to enrich the experience for both educators and students.

Activate culminates in state and national ‘Shark Tank’ finals where the best student led enterprises pitch against each other for the chance to secure the funding and support to take their ideas out of the classroom and launch them in the real world.

How It Works
  • Prior to delivering the program, each school’s Future Anything Teaching Team is supported by a day of dynamic professional learning.
  • Students engage in Future Fest; a fun and fast paced day of listening, learning and doing that provides young people with the opportunity to hear from some of Australia’s most exciting change-makers.
  • Future Anything is delivered in classrooms around the country during Term 2 and/or Term 3.
  • Students submit their innovative ideas to an Australian wide competition with State and National Finals held in Term 4. Selected teams have the chance to pitch to a judging panel of industry leaders for the chance to secure the funding and support to launch their business out of the classroom and into the real world.
  • Each National Finalist secures automatic selection in YouthX; a purpose-built support program designed to develop the capacity of teenage entrepreneurs to launch their enterprise.
