Welcome!

At Change Agent Project we understand that you want to make a positive impact for your community – but we also know that making a difference can sometimes feel overwhelming.

Using our combined 45 years’ community project experience, we have created a fun, dynamic and all-inclusive 6-week online mentoring program.

  • Utilise your strengths (regardless of experience) to make a real difference
  • Create a community map and model of social change to find the right projects that will not only benefit your community but align to your strengths and passions
  • Build a team to bring your project alive
  • Align your project to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and be a part of a global movement acting locally
  • Define project goals, and how to scope and plan to ensure your project is successful
  • Understand and communicate your project’s impact so that you get buy in

How we learn together

  • 6 x weekly sessions via Zoom (approx. 1 hour per session)
  • ​Weekly worksheets to follow and keep you focused
  • One doable action (homeplay) for each week to keep your project moving forward

Who is this for?

  • You care about your community and you want to make a lasting difference
  • You have some spare time to dedicate to your next project
  • You have donated or volunteered over the years, now you want to do more
  • You have children or grandchildren and want to leave this world a better place for their future
  • You have an inspiring idea but need confidence, the team and the support to get it off the ground

Your facilitator – Yolie Entsch

Yolie knows what it takes to get a community project off the ground. Her experience in community projects is broad, from designing and building a community playground, fundraising and delivering a Christmas program for young people experiencing homelessness, educating children in environmental education, starting up a social enterprise that supports vulnerable people into employment, to renovating a community centre.

Yolie has been passionately initiating and engaging in innovative projects addressing social and environmental issues for over 30 years.

She is founder of Younity Works, a social enterprise. She believes that everyone can be a change agent, and by working in unity and sharing the value of contribution, we can all shape the future and create positive and lasting change that benefits our communities.

To act on her beliefs, Yolie has started up ground-breaking Not-for-Profits, Social Enterprises, guided forward-thinking business owners in enhancing their social impact and designed nationally recognised programs for vulnerable people addressing poverty and social inequality.

As a qualified Trainer, Facilitator and Coach Yolie offers transforming pathways, interactive experiences, and practical tools for people to connect to who they truly are and to imagine a new world.

Yolie has qualifications in Human Movement and Disability Studies, Outdoor Leadership, Action Learning, Training, Facilitation, and Business Administration.

With an 85% success rate in sourcing funding and negotiating resources, she has raised over $2.5 million in value for community services and projects. Walking her talk, Yolie has invested over $20,000 in other social enterprises as well as her own.
