Variety Just Like You is a disability awareness program designed to build understanding, acceptance and inclusion. Through celebrating differences, developing empathy and creating inclusion, students learn that people with a disability are the same as everyone else – they are ‘Just Like You’.
Variety Just Like You is designed for primary school students’ specific year groups and mapped against the Australian Curriculum. The workshops are lively, interactive and compelling, delivered as two face to face workshops for three separate stages (Year 1 & 2, Year 3 & 4, Year 5 & 6) and presented by professional facilitators, each with a disability.
We are excited to commence the program in QLD, with thanks to The James Frizelle Charitable Foundation, to 10 primary schools on the Gold Coast in 2021. We hope to deliver the program to many more schools across the state in the future!
The Variety Just Like You program is made possible thanks to the following partners:
