We have reimagined Stand Up as an organization where education and action are not separate ideas but inextricably intertwined.
In the words of Herbert Spencer: “The great aim of education is not knowledge but action.” Stand Up has been good enough to do both for a long time – now we are tying these two great objectives together more closely.
In line with our new program principles, we're committed to offering a suite of programs that are dynamic, best practice and sustainable, and where anyone can come to Stand Up and make their contribution towards our vision of a world where everyone can thrive, unconstrained by systems and attitudes that entrench disadvantage.
Jewish Day Schools and Partnerships with other Jewish Organizations.
Stand Up has been reimagined as an organization that works more deliberately in partnership and collaboration to channel the collective willpower, expertise and compassion of the Australian Jewish community into meaningful, durable, and exciting change.
Currently, this ‘menu’ serves as a first step towards delivering social justice content to Jewish youth. While the sessions can be run for a variety of age groups, Stand Up is in the process of building and developing a full-service offering, including opportunities to take action, that are specific to middle and high school-aged students.
The School for Social Action:
We have 14 unique education sessions on offer. The menu provides schools and other organizations with the opportunity to effectively ‘pick and choose’ the unique sessions they would like Stand Up to run. All the sessions are engaging, interactive, and aim to inspire young Jewish adults to effect positive social change.
The sessions can be run for a range of groups, varying in age and size. Most of the sessions are between 90 minutes and 2 hours in length and can be changed if needed.
The sessions are facilitated by passionate young adults with informal educational experience. Enhancing overall program delivery, our facilitators ensure that the sessions are delivered in an innovative, challenging and inclusive environment.
