We the Differents
The aim of We The Differents is to change negative attitudes towards school and empower students to confidently face challenges that arise both in and outside of class, as well as providing direction for life beyond school.
It focuses on self-empowerment and the belief that change happens when youth embrance 'their different' and find a hobby or passion that drives them and provides direction - unlocking doors of opportunity along the way.
We The Differents is a collective of information, tips, ideas and experiences to help you know what's on offer, find the right support and options for you and make the most of your education.
