The Personal Leadership Program is an intensive 60 hour wellbeing and life skills training program offered to Year 10 school students across metropolitan and regional South Australia.
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. It helps young people understand themselves and provides them with tools to develop the skills to make the right choices for their future.
We focus on a range of topics including self -confidence, improving relationships, effective communication, increasing motivation, improving school grades, planning your future career, dealing with bullying and other negative experiences, taking control of your life, and increasing leadership skills. Our job is to help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be.
Here is a snapshot of what is involved.
