Australian Olympic Committee launches 2021 Australian Olympic Change-Maker programme
The Australian Olympic Committee has launched the 2021 Australian Olympic Change-Maker (OCM) programme to recognise and encourage young leaders powering positive change in their communities.
The programme is open to all secondary schools around Australia, and aims to celebrate students who live the Olympic spirit by demonstrating leadership and using the power of sport to bring communities together.
AOC CEO Matt Carroll said:
“I’m thrilled to open nominations for the Australian Olympic Change-Maker program in 2021,” Mr Carroll said.
“Over the last two years of the programme, I’ve been inspired by the ideas, enthusiasm and impact students recognised as Olympic Change-Makers have had on their communities. Students from the regions to capital cities, who are using sport to make the lives of people in their community better each day.
“With the potential of a home Games on the horizon and a decade runway of opportunity for Australia, the students of today will have an incredible input on Australia’s future.
“I look forward to again receiving the ideas from young leaders in 2021 and encourage all teachers to nominate students who are inspiring their local communities,” Mr Carroll said.
