Step Up

Program Overview:

Young people are growing up in an increasingly complex and interconnected world. They can see, perhaps more than any generation that has come before them, the challenges and the opportunities that lie ahead. At Stand Up, we are committed to playing our part in helping young people understand the social justice landscape, while inspiring them to make their own invaluable contribution to the Jewish and wider community.

Our Step Up education program is designed to give B'nei Mitzvah aged students the opportunity to take a step up into their Jewish adulthood and to understand the responsibilities and challenges that come with that, grappling with these questions through an innovative social justice experience. Step Up enhances the Bar/Bat Mitzvah year by providing a pivotal learning curve for students to gain a greater understanding of the world around them. The program empowers young Jewish Australians to become leaders in their community, guided by core Jewish values of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), Tzedakah (justice) and Chessed (kindness) to create positive change in the world.

Testimonials

My favorite program was going to the market and doing the $2 challenge. I learnt about Indigenous rights, the poverty cycle, and so much more. Something that shocked me was the privilege walk. I learnt how privileged I am.
– Anoushka

 

This program is proudly supported by Stand Up's major partners: JCA and the Gandel Foundation.

Education

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.

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.
