What to expect
Your very own Youth Development Coach will work with you weekly to develop a personalised plan centred on your goals and needs. Your plan will include several different life goals depending on your aspirations for the future. You will also get to join small group sessions to build your skills.

Explore – your strengths, dreams, options and possibilities
Plan – develop personal goals and a plan to achieve them
Build – on your skills, knowledge, networks and connections
