Unlock the potential of your future leaders
Student leadership is recognised as an important aspect of teenager development. Allowing students to experience and take a lead in decision making, problem solving and collaborative projects helps them develop skills that will stay with them into adulthood.
The Future Leaders Program provides students with the chance to learn and develop leadership skills together. Drawing on proven leadership strategies, our program allows students to discover the difference between popularity and leadership in an engaging, motivating and enjoyable environment.
Students will take part in a range of workshops and outdoor activities designed to build their knowledge and experience of communication, problem solving, critical thinking, decision making, goal setting and action planning.
Who should attend?
The program is suited to all secondary students.
Over the 3-day program, students explore the following educational outcomes:
- Goal setting and action planning
- Communication and listening skills
- Problem solving and critical and creative thinking
- Group dynamics and teamwork
- Decision making and dispute resolution.
Students participate in a range of theory sessions and outdoor education activities that focus on leadership skills.
Working in teams, students also design a School Action Plan that addresses a key school or community issue that is identified by the students prior to arrival at camp. During their camp experience, students reflect on their learning and apply their knowledge in order to develop the plan. At the conclusion of the program, each team presents their School Action Plan to the school community and are encouraged to implement their ideas on return to school. Principals and parents/caregivers are invited to attend the final session of the program.
