The Big Issue Challenge
The Big Issue Challenge is a corporate team-building activity that makes a real difference. Learn about homelessness and disadvantage from a guest speaker with first-hand insight, and then in teams hit the streets to sell The Big Issue magazine with a vendor.
Along with having a direct, immediate impact on the lives of street vendors, you will come away from the Challenge with greater empathy, resilience, creativity and other real-world skills that can’t be learnt at a desk.
The Big Issue Challenge half-day experience runs in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Canberra. To find out more about The Big Issue Challenge fill out the enquiry form below.
