Matt was at Griffith University today, giving the opening address for the 2015 Student Leadership Conference entitled The WHY factor - what sets great leaders apart. He also got to run a workshop on creating a vision and making it reality.
Our mission is to support Australian schools in developing a generation of confident, motivated and skilled young leaders who are capable and willing to make a positive difference in our changing world.
We do this through the creation and delivery of school leadership and positive education programs, events and meaningful travel adventures that are engaging and relevant to young people in the 21st century.
In 2015 we reached more than 30,000 young people from 340 schools and organisations across Australia. In 2016 we hope to continue to expand, working with more schools and students across every state in Australia.
We believe leadership is about action not a badge and that all young people have the capacity to be active and inspiring leaders in their communities. Our experiences showcase everyday leadership and its value in our lives through fun and interactive activities delivered by our young and engaging facilitators.
Every experience we deliver focuses on the three essential pillars of leadership:
- Leadership Begins Within – Building a strong sense of identity and self-confidence around individual strengths, passions and abilities.
- Together Has Power – Exploring the power and importance of relationships and team dynamics.
- Leadership is Action – Developing the skills, tools and attitudes to create positive change at school, within the community and beyond.
