A Learning and Developmental opportunity for young people

Big Brothers Big Sisters, in association with a variety of graduate industry leaders is excited to launch Million $ Challenge. An exciting staff and graduate development program that gives participants the opportunity to delve into entrepreneurship while developing both business and leadership skills.

Big Brothers Big Sisters is Australia’s largest youth mentoring charity with over 100 years of international history and expertise.

The Million $ Challenge is an accelerated development opportunity for leaders of today to raise money to mentor vulnerable young people and unlock their potential, so they can be the leaders of tomorrow.

The aim is to raise one million dollars over the next five years to mentor 1,000 young people in Australia facing serious adversity, to support them to become empowered and engaged individuals.

Million $ Challenge is a 10 week cross organisational challenge that runs Australia wide. This is your chance to get your staff or graduate teams involved as part of their development journey and to support some of Australia’s most vulnerable young people.

Are you looking for an exciting activity based challenge for graduates that also provides a social impact? 

The challenge was developed to provide participating graduates with a 10 week immersive and supportive ‘real world’ learning experience that includes;

  • cross organisational learning and networking
  • fully facilitated development days
  • mentoring support and access to coaches and business mentors from some of Australia’s largest organisations.

This learning by doing approach requires graduates from companies and organisations across Australia to compete against each other to run the most profitable mini enterprise and raise much needed funds for the youth mentoring charity.

The Million $ Challenge is an accelerated development opportunity for leaders of tomorrow to raise money to support today’s vulnerable young people.
