Variety – the Children’s Charity is proud to deliver the Just Like You disability education and awareness program in Sydney, Newcastle, Central Coast and ACT.
For ten years, the Just Like You program has been educating primary school students on the acceptance and inclusion of people living with a disability. The program helps them learn that people living with a disability are the same as everyone else – they are “Just Like You”.
Variety – the Children’s Charity is dedicated to empowering Australian children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs to live, laugh and learn. We believe that all children deserve the same opportunities in life regardless of ability or background.
The Variety Just Like You program delivers lively, interactive and compelling workshops, where students are encouraged to reflect on their own roles and actions as a citizen in their school and community.
The program is designed for primary school students’ specific year groups, mapped to the Australian Curriculum and is delivered as 2 face-to-face workshops for each stage (Year 1 & 2, Year 3 & 4, Year 5 & 6).
