Greek Australian CEO Mike Zervos receives Multicultural Education Award for Courage to Care Vic

·

Greek Australian Mike Zervos, CEO of Courage to Care Victoria, has received the Victorian Multicultural Award for Excellence in Education on behalf of the not-for-profit organisation.

Due to celebrate its 30th birthday in 2022, the Courage to Care program teaches school students through regional exhibitions and facilitated incursions about the actions of courageous individuals who acted to save Jewish lives during the Holocaust. 

Courage to Care was Highly Commended for inspiring students across Victoria and received the education award at the Victorian Multicultural Awards.

“The Courage to Care message, which is as relevant today as ever, creates a model of moral and ethical behaviour to inspire young people about the importance of standing up to prejudice, racism, bullying and all forms of discrimination, and to challenge their own prejudices,” the Victorian Multicultural Commission said.

The Victorian Multicultural Awards for Excellence acknowledge the outstanding achievements of people, groups and organisations that foster cross-cultural understanding, build social cohesion and support people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to participate in all aspects of life.

B’nai B’rith Courage to Care Victoria appointed Mike Zervos their first CEO in August 2018. Mike said he was particularly drawn to Courage to Care’s Mission of informing and educating on the dangers of prejudice, racism and bullying.

“I am confident that by communicating the importance of our work, we will continue to gain support. This will be a real team effort,” Mike Zervos said.
