Mini Vinnies Roadshow
Created to service rural and remote school communities throughout Queensland
There are 1723 schools across Queensland with approximately 65% of schools located regional or remote Queensland. Schools in regional and remote communities often aren’t always afforded the same opportunities as schools located closer to the major cities and towns. To help bridge this gap of providing school communities and students in regional or remote Queensland with the resources and experiences we offer schools in larger cities and towns we have developed a Mini Vinnies Roadshow program.
Roadshows are a condensed version of a Mini Vinnies Social Justice Day, which is designed to provide schools with a similar experience to the Mini Vinnies Social Justice Day. Typically roadshows are scheduled during Term 1 or 2 with the aim of traveling to schools within a specific week. Schools are able to select either a morning or afternoon session, which will typically run between 1.5 to 2 hours in length. Roadshows are interactive and work well for groups of 20-50 students.
While we are looking to expand this program, Mini Vinnies Roadshows are not yet available in all areas. Mini Vinnies Roadshow have taken place in areas around Mackay, Kingaroy, Gayndah, Roma, Harvey Bay, Murgon, Bundaberg, Mt Isa and Cloncurry. We are continually looking at how we can expand, if your school community is interested in the Mini Vinnies Roadshows please complete the expression of interest form below, or contact your local Youth Engagement Officer to discuss further.
