B’nai B’rith Courage to Care Victoria
843a Glenhuntly Road, Caulfield VIC 3162
B’nai B’rith Courage to Care is one of the most dynamic and important programs students encounter. In a program employing the Holocaust as a backdrop to the extraordinary acts of ordinary people known as the Righteous Among the Nations, students explore issues of racism, prejudice, stereotyping and (cyber-)bullying, reflect on the consequences of bystander behaviour, and are empowered to be Upstanders in the face of injustice.
Developed and delivered by an amazing team of trained volunteers, the Program inspires Australians to understand that each person can make a difference by choosing to be an Upstander in the face of prejudice and bullying.
Central are the stories of Upstanders: The Righteous Among the Nations and our own Local Heroes, in free exhibition program workshops or smaller-scale incursions to schools. Professional Development in-service for teachers is available for participating schools.
The Program is free of charge to schools and bus subsidies may be available to assist schools so cost is no obstacle to student participation. The Exhibition is open to the general public and there is no admission charge – we welcome donations to keep this program on the road.
Courage to Care received the Victorian Multicultural Commission Award for Excellence in Education 2013 and is supported by the Victorian Department of Education and Training.
We are indebted to our Principal Partner Gandel Philanthropy, for support in the production of the interactive multimedia exhibition materials, and the portable multimedia incursion program kits.
