Positive Change Makers (PCM) uses experiential strengths-based learning to develop the next generation of socially aware young leaders.

The PCM training modules are designed to help young people gain the valuable skills they need to become Positive Change-Makers. Delivered by experienced facilitators, the modules offer a range of engaging and practical activities to build the capacity of our future leaders and explore concepts of values-based leadership, team building, active citizenship, culture and ally-ship.

To further embed CMY’s youth leadership practice, each session will be co-delivered by a young person as part of a volunteering opportunity through CMY’s Youth Leadership Team and the Shout Out public speakers bureau. The Volunteer Youth Facilitator will bring an element of lived experience to the topics discussed and enable meaningful engagement with the content as well as a professional development opportunity for the young people.

Positive Change Makers is supported by the Department of Premier and Cabinet, Equity and Youth Branch. Thanks to this funding we are able to deliver a number of PCM sessions to newly-arrived migrant and refugee young people at no cost. Please get in touch with our staff to find out more.
