Discover Your Strengths, Ignite Your Passion
A 2-day, fun-packed, self-awareness programme for teens, ages 14-17. The teenagers explore their strengths and passions, while gaining self-esteem, motivation and clarity of purpose. They work in teams of no more than 4 to complete team challenges, one of which is to deliver a pitch to a panel of ‘experts’ on how they can make a difference in the world. That's where we see their confidence soar!
After the programme, the teenagers can draw on the support of business mentors and others to develop their ideas and deliver projects in their local community.

Our Programmes in a Nutshell
Our programmes are based on personalised learning. We start with the individual and analyse their particular set of strengths. Non-personalised learning can often seem irrelevant to individual needs and it is easy to become disengaged. This is different!
It is transformational. The programmes are hands-on and driven by the teenagers themselves. They experience real change in their feelings of self-worth, motivation and sense of purpose. They leave the programme more confident and more resilient. We don't focus on improving academic grades or qualifications although this has been shown to be an outcome.
Many of the jobs around today will not be around in 5-10 years’ time. We'll look at what its going to take to be successful in tomorrow's world. We’ll hear amazing stories from young people. Each teenager will identify their own pathway for success.

Who Should Attend?
Programmes are open to all teenagers between the ages of 14 and 17 who want to discover their unique strengths and passions, spend time with other teenagers and find out what is important to them. The programme focuses on individualised learning and setting everyone up to succeed.
Whether you feel limited by school, want to explore starting a business of your own, or simply want to know more about your learning style and grow in confidence, this is an opportunity not to be missed.
NEW FOR JANUARY 2021!
At the request of previous participants we are offering a longer, 4-day programme! This will give everyone the opportunity to delve deeper into their strengths, passions and purpose and explore in depth what that means for school options and career choices. The teenagers will be supported to build detailed plans around their personal goals as well as taking their community-based projects to the next stage. We'll have plenty of time for fun-based activities and cover more around well-being, healthy living and nutrition. Dates and locations subject to demand.
More programmes coming soon. We are constantly reviewing and developing our programmes and welcome any feedback on topics you would like to see.
