Madeleine from Melbourne wants to support young carers. Jo from Sydney wants to teach school students to code. Maddeline from Canberra wants to focus on suicide prevention. They are part of the Young Social Pioneers program, specifically for Australians aged under 30 who run their own not-for-profit or social enterprise. These three young people, along with 24 others, are pitching their idea to corporate and philanthropic organisations, in hope of getting $10,000 to make their vision a reality.
