The future focused CEO of the Foundation for Young Australians.

Jan is a highly regarded social entrepreneur, innovator, influencer and author who has spent the past 25 years growing Australia’s youth, social enterprise and innovation sectors. The CEO of the Foundation for Young Australians and YLab, the global youth futures lab, Jan’s lifelong mission is to unleash the potential of young people to lead positive change in the world. 

Over the years FYA has done leading work nationally to help young people, by advocating for change at the highest levels, supporting grassroots social entrepreneurs and influencing learning approaches in schools. In recent years the organisation has catalysed an inspired future focus around Australia through its New Work Order reports, and at Educhange Jan will speak to these findings.

Jan is a dear friend of Education Changemakers, a frequent collaborator and we can’t wait to have her sharing her genius from the Educhange stage.
