What is it all about

The Youth Opportunities Personal Leadership Program is a one day per week training program that runs over a school term. It is offered to year 10 students in schools and organisations across metropolitan and regional South Australia. See a list of where we currently run here

Using positive psychology and cognitive therapy, the program engages and extends participants knowledge and skills in areas not typically part of their schooling but that are crucially important to life.

Students decide what they want to gain from the Program and our Trainers help them achieve this. The Program focuses on a range of topics including:

  • self-confidence
  • positive communication and relationships
  • motivation for school or study
  • goal planning and finding career pathways
  • dealing with bullying and other negative experiences
  • leadership
