“Very inspired with all the Social Enterprises we visited today. To learn about the whole story, about failures and success, the journey, for young people to realise these things can happen if they have commitment, passion and endurance, and questioning their why. It might be that big idea that comes from this group of kids through this experience.”Brian Crook
“I highly recommend the tour as it helps develop the building blocks of a program you may be developing. At Mater Christi College we deliver VET small business within our VCAL program. To introduce the new students into the program for 2108 we decided to join Lucie on a tour of a variety of social enterprises around Fitzroy. Having lunch as a group, enjoying indigenous produce and learning about social enterprise was a highlight of the tour.”Sara Mugridge
