Great feedback from Youth Opportunities’ Accelerate Program

31 August 2023 / Schools, Students, Training

Thanks to Youth Opportunities being awarded the Federal Government Emerging Priorities Grant, we have been able to launch a licenced version of our core face-to-face Personal Leadership Program, Accelerate.

This grant has enabled us to meet the increasing need to support young people Australia wide by partnering with even more schools nationally.

Through our partnership we train school staff to become accredited facilitators of our Accelerate Personal Leadership Program – which enables the school to equip year 10 students with the practical skills and tools they need to improve wellbeing and increase resilience and leadership. This is new territory for us (literally), which is why it is so amazing to be able to share some wonderful feedback one of our new partner schools!

“One of our students who has been identified as high risk has already stepped out of their comfort zone by participating in more group discussions, and even delivered a small presentation in front of their entire class.”

“Parents of the students who attended their first session were so pleased to hear their young people talking so positively about the program, and how receptive they were to what the program was all about.”

“Teachers in the school are so willing and receptive to learn more about how they can support the young people attending the program… the resources are incredibly easy to access and follow… we will definitely be running a staff information session soon so collectively as a cohort we are all on the same page… The whole school community in Minlaton is working together to make this a huge success.”
