“We rise by lifting others” – Robert Ingersoll
Every member of the BROWNS Family – teachers, trainers, students and friends – deserves the opportunity to enrich their Australian experience and contribute towards a better tomorrow. The BROWNS Elevate Initiative embraces learning with purpose. In the classroom, the principles of Content and Language Integrated Learning bring pressing social issues to life; students develop empathy, intuitiveness and social consciousness alongside their language skills. Outside the classroom, the initiative harnesses these learnings with monthly student involvement in local non-profit and charitable organisations.
One by one, the participation of BROWNS students creates profound change for a range of issues and organisations supported by the BROWNS Elevate Initiative.

|MONTH||ORGANISATION AND DETAILS||DATE|
|MARCH||CLEAN UP AUSTRALIA DAY
In order to ensure that the beaches of the Gold Coast are clean and that Brisbane city remains pristine, BROWNS students will aim to fill at least two bags per class (target 50 bags) of Rubbish on the day. Prizes will be available for the class that fills the most bags. BROWNS will then donate to The Smith Family for every Garbage bag.
|JUNE||WORLD CULTURE DAY
There is a vast variety of cultures around the globe and BROWNS students will celebrate this diversity by dressing as per their culture. Donations of $1.00 will be encouraged with all proceeds going to The Smith Family.
|OCTOBER||WORLD TEACHER'S DAY
Teachers and in particular BROWNS Teachers are incredibly passionate about what they do and they educate with a high level of integrity. Students will be encouraged to write a Thank you note to their Teacher and BROWNS will donate to The Smith Family in the name of its Teachers.
The end of the year and festivities will be in full bloom. Donating a dollar to wear red on the day could also lead to prizes but most importantly will create a festive giving spirit that BROWNS is famous for. All money raised will go to The Smith Family
