The Big Issue Classroom is a social enterprise initiative of The Big Issue. Our online workshops provide students with a "real-life" insight into homelessness, marginalisation and disadvantage, as experienced by thousands of Australians every night. By booking a workshop you are helping to create employment for disadvantaged Australians, enabling them to earn an income, regain confidence, and move on with their lives.

The Big Issue Classroom truly is "a Classroom Experience That Makes a Difference."

In all workshops, a specialist facilitator challenges stereotypes about homelessness and explains how The Big Issue helps people reconnect with the community. We then share a personal story of homelessness. For secondary students, this is a first-hand account from someone who has experienced homelessness personally. For primary students, we share an interactive illustrated version.

Both primary and secondary workshops are available. Please specify which workshop you would like. For a list of workshops, please visit our website www.thebigissue.org.au/the-big-issue-classroom-about/
