High school students who live in out-of-home care are invited to spend a day on campus at La Trobe University (Bendigo campus) to start their journey to higher education. 

Keynote speaker: Brittany Witnish


Students and their carers will hear from keynote speaker: Brittany Witnish, Youth Advisor at the Commission of Children and Young People and Young Leader at the Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare, about her pathway to university; how she got there and what has been important along the way. As well as from young people who have done it tough and young people with a care background who have achieved in a whole range of study areas. Attendees can find out what it has meant to them and the possibilities it opened up.

There will be a series of fun activities, tailored to different age groups, including the opportunity to partner up with a buddy and race around La Trobe.
