 Alisa is passionate about High Resolves because…

I am excited about the transformative power of High Resolves’ educative approach to empowering students to think critically about the global context of their local lives. I believe it is important that students develop a sense of belonging to a common humanity and act responsibly for a more just, peaceful and sustainable world. I am thrilled at the part High Resolves can play in making that happen.

Carrie Silver
Learning and Development Manager, Australia

Growing up in one of Canada’s largest and most diverse cities, Carrie developed a great curiosity about the cultures that surrounded her, which led her to study world religions, modern history and population geography and make the brave leap to move to Australia in her late teens. She has taught history, geography and social and community studies in Queensland classrooms, and holds a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Teaching from the University of New England.

I am passionate about High Resolves because…
At High Resolves I have the privilege of connecting with young people and finding out what they are passionate about. Every day brings a new story from amazing young people who inspire me, and I’m excited to see what this generation will do to make the world a better place!

Our history

Following the successful expansion of High Resolves into Victoria, we established a hub in Brisbane in 2011.

We work with a range of schools from across the different sectors and tailor our program to meet the specific needs of each.

The Queensland hub is dedicated and passionate about providing Queensland students with the knowledge and skills to be effective and purposeful global citizens and leaders. Since our inception, over 35,000 young people in Queensland have participated in the High Resolves program.

Our work

Case Study: Centenary State High School

Centenary State High School has been a part of the High Resolves family since 2013 and we are very lucky to work with full cohorts in Years 7 – 10. Over the years Centenary has incorporated all aspects of the High Resolves program and are truly committed to creating students who are effective and purposeful global citizens and leaders.

High Resolves delivers immersive face-to-face workshops for students and on- and off-site professional development for their teachers. We also supply Centenary with additional classroom resources and support teachers to run project-based, student-led Social Action Projects. Centenary’s Year 10 media students participate in our annual Videos for Change challenge which allows them a real life application of the skills they have learnt throughout the program.
