Our world, our choice
Imagine an Australia where a critical mass of over 100,000 young people finish high school motivated and equipped with the skills to be purposeful global citizens and leaders of constructive social change in their communities.
The High Resolves program helps students realise that they have a personal role to play in how human society develops as a global community and that the choices they make in life will make a difference. This aim is encapsulated in the motto: our world, our choice.
High Resolves is a secondary school educational initiative that includes two progressive programs that build on each other – the Global Citizenship Program for Year 8 students and the Global Leadership Program for Year 9 and 10 students.
This program is the perfect pathway for students who will go on to become involved with other FYA programs such as Young People Without Borders or Young Social Pioneers. When students are given opportunities to take part in social action, they become more constructive and independent thinkers. As a result, they have a greater impact as they develop into young adults, stepping up to leadership roles in their communities.
‘I hold High Resolves completely responsible for my now ceaseless passion for social justice.’
– Former High Resolves student
