As a dad to two brilliant kids, I know young minds are an amazing source of innovative and powerful ideas. As the Greens MP for Maiwar, I want to support those ideas however I can.

My office and I are looking for Mai-warriors - young, passionate people who want to improve their local community.

If you have a project you want to get started in your school or local community that supports environmental sustainability or social justice, I want to hear from you. The Mai-warriors program can provide grants to school-aged students of up to $500, plus help with administration, promotion and printing to help make your idea a reality.

Some examples of projects I’d be keen to support include:
● Banning single use straws from the school tuckshop
● Starting a community garden
● Cleaning up a local park or school grounds
● Setting up a recycling system at school or for a co-curricular activity
● Supporting elders in the community by helping with day-to-day jobs

To apply to be a Mai-warrior, just fill in this Expression of Interest, email it in, and we’ll take it from there.

If you'd like to discuss your project first, drop in, call or email us:
