Why do schools keep coming back to take part in Videos for Change again and again?


"Videos for Change is a really wonderful opportunity for young people to see that they can make a difference to the world... and I think we should encourage them more and more in our schools and in our curriculum to be doing work like this." Karen Spiller OAM CF, Principal, John Paul College, Qld.
