A not for profit travelling education program that transforms bystander behaviour by using the Holocaust as a medium to explore racism, prejudice, discrimination and bullying, and to highlight the acts of Upstanders, the ‘Righteous Among the Nations’ (those men and women who risked their own lives to save others) and the heroes of other genocides whose courage saved lives.
By highlighting the importance of standing up to bullying and prejudice whenever it occurs, Courage to Care empowers and inspires participants to take positive action, to be Upstanders rather than bystanders to discrimination in all forms, from the school yard to the workplace. Courage to Care offers workshops for schools, community groups and workplaces.
The Program is wholly delivered by volunteers. It is available free of charge to schools, and as fee for service for workplaces and community groups.
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.
