    Each Semester, Young Change Agents offers a free-to-access Youth Design Challenge for all Australian school students including those participating in home-schooling. Design Challenges are a great way for youth to learn about Design Thinking and build their enterprise skills. Even if they have done a previous challenge or another entrepreneurial program, each challenge will help them further develop their entrepreneurial mindset, skillset and toolset. Each challenge is built around a new theme allowing schools to be able to draw on a wide bank of challenges to suit your students.
