In addition to selling The Big Issue magazine, vendors have an opportunity to engage with school groups through The Big Issue Education Program. By supporting this program your gift will be three-fold: helping a vendor earn an additional income, building confidence in the vendor through interaction with members of the school community and educating the younger generation in a hands-on way about the issues of homelessness in Australia.
“Talking to school kids – I like doing it, for more than just the cash. Talking to kids makes me feel like I’m making a difference, like my story’s important. It feels great,” Andrew, Big Issue vendor and guest speaker.
