“Future Anything really opened my eyes; I realised you don’t have to wait to make a difference. You don’t need to wait until you’re an adult, or until someone tells you that you can. You can take your passions and skills and turn them into something you’re proud of, something that sparks the change that you want to see, right now. So that’s what I did, and now my youth-led mental health podcast, MentalMusic, has been successfully running for over two years.”

"Our kids and staff have loved the opportunity to work with Nicole and the team from Future Anything. The opportunities to engage in real world learning, driven by the student’s areas of interest, within a framework that supports the curriculum has been invaluable. Our kids have engaged to such a high level with their social impact projects that we are expanding the opportunities this year, and I can’t wait to see the outcome."

“Future Anything is one of the most exciting initiatives I have seen in recent years. It aligns to much of the work of the Foundation for Young Australians, in particular the New Work Order research regarding the dispositions, skills and capabilities which our young people will require to work, live and thrive in the future.
I cannot speak highly enough of the strategy, design, management and outcomes of Future Anything. It’s rapid growth is an indication of its relevance to a new generation of young people who are passionate about purpose, social change and entrepreneurship.”

"I would like to recognise the unique opportunity that Future Anything provides as a program embedded within the school curriculum to enable our young people to take on the role of a social entrepreneur; not only through building their own social enterprises but through solving complex problems which inspire real-world change. Future Anything is an outstanding program that delivers on authentic and real world learning experiences and MacGregor SHS is looking forward to being involved again.”
Principal, MacGregor SHS
“Future Anything is an amazing program. It gave me the opportunity to pitch my own business idea to a panel of judges who were actually really inspiring entrepreneurs in their own right. I’m in the process of starting my own business- which is so much more than I could have ever asked for. I have grown confidence and become much more resilient. I would recommend this program to every school! It is a once in a lifetime opportunity for students.“
