Utilising our expertise in the areas of mental health, wellbeing, enterprise and personal leadership, Youth Opportunities provides a range of customisable programs and services that can be adapted to meet the needs of services, and organisations, who work with young people.

Programs & services

While the format, application and delivery may differ, they all have one thing in common – supporting young people to not only cope, but thrive.

AIM

An innovative way to deliver vocational learning embedded within Youth Opportunities Personal Leadership Program. Delivered in a flexible model to support school and industry whilst students complete a specialty industry pathway program or flexible school based apprenticeship, Aim develops the skills participants need to build their enterprise and employability skills, enhance leadership and support successful and sustainable outcomes for their transition from learning to earning.

Piloted in 2020, these programs are designed to combat a myriad of issues identified by young people, schools and industry affecting retention and  successful transition into the workplace and gives students the opportunity to develop vital skills and competencies.

Delivery includes content specific to industry and entering the workforce, group learning and tailored 1:1 coaching, along with presentations from industry-relevant guest speakers who provide mentor support by providing relevant information and advice. Students explore and develop habits and attitudes of success and the obstacles they may encounter during their first year of employment, and how to successfully navigate through them as critical and creative thinkers.

On completion of the Youth Opportunities Personal Leadership Program, participants will also receive an additional 20 SACE credits.

LEAD
