It’s Your Move (IYM) is an ACT Health initiative that provides high school students with an opportunity to develop creative solutions that improve school health. We deliver this initiative in partnership with the ACT Education Directorate.
The multi award-winning Entrepreneurs: IYM curriculum sees students lead the change towards healthier high schools. Following the design thinking process, students develop and implement a project that suits the individual needs of their school. Students develop skills such as innovation, systems mapping, problem solving, pitching and collaboration and can see their project come to life with seed funding from ACT Health, and guidance from local business mentors.
Schools can also choose from other exciting ways to improve the health and wellbeing of their school community with IYM, such as Create-a-Café and other projects and programs which you’ll find on our high school resources pages. Building on the success and learnings of the IYM iterations to date we will continue to focus on creating healthier high school environments by working intensively with 3 schools during 2020/21. The Entrepreneurs curriculum will continue to be available to all schools.
IYM is FREE to all ACT high schools. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 02 5124 9471 for more information.
We are always looking for innovative people from business, government and community sectors to help students develop and implement their projects. Please email us if you are interested in becoming involved in this program.
