Making a difference

By Cate Sayers and Alyssa Forbes-Nicholson

In the print version of the journal, we featured a very informative piece about the development of the pilot program Impact21 where students with Down syndrome are able to enrol in a course through Torrens University, learning job specific skills that will will guarantee them a job placement with one of five participating organisations on the program – Sodexo, Dulux, Deakin University, JB Hi Fi, and Price Waterhouse Coopers.

Three students spoke at the event. You can read their speeches here.

Find out more about the program here including links to other media about the event.
