Kia ora and welcome
Our purpose is to inspire teenagers to recognise their unique strengths and passion so that they can make a positive difference for themselves and others.
Know Your Purpose is a registered charity and works in partnership with businesses and funding agencies to ensure everyone can attend our programmes.
"What a gift this program is! It has been truly lovely to watch my usually stressed/anxious daughter relax into a sense of understanding of her own unique talents. I quite literally just watched her become OK with going to school, it's like she was finally able to gain a perspective that has allowed her celebrate the parts she likes and not sweat the parts she doesn't."
Interrupting the conversation around doubt, failure and anxiety
Many teenagers lack a real sense of purpose or belief in themselves. They are limited by an education system that is driven by conformity rather than creativity.
Today's expanding technologies expose teenagers
to a constant bombardment of information and comparison. Peer pressure is at unprecedented levels. So too, are feelings of failure, anxiety and
low self-worth, New Zealand has the highest
teenage suicide rate in the developed world.
At Know Your Purpose, we interrupt the talk
around doubt, failure and anxiety and provide personalised, transformational experiences
that support teenagers to develop the life skills
they need to live happy and fulfilled lives.
What are your natural talents?
All participants complete a profile test to identify their unique blend of talents. This enables them to understand their own strengths, the value they add to others and how they learn best.
We use the world's leading profile tool for entrepreneurs, especially adapted for young people.
Don't know what you want to do with your life?
Feeling bored, disillusioned or under-valued?
Have something you are passionate about?
Want to make a difference and don't know where to start?
Come and join one of our fun-packed programmes to find out about your unique talents, explore your passions and purpose, make new friends and discover your easiest route to success.
Family and friends
We understand the power of a supportive environment, hence include free seminars for family and friends during all our teenager programmes.
You will see the different personality types identified by our profile tool, and understand why some people find certain things easier than others. And why we all have different ways of succeeding.
We can also speak at parent or school events on request.
