Positive Mentoring and Role Modelling

We provide both ‘One on One’ positive role modelling and mentoring sessions and also do small groups of up to 12 individuals.  These sessions can range from a minimum of one hour up to a full day’s activities and can be applied to any gender.  Every day people we meet or know guide us through their actions, achievements and words, who are these role models and what qualities do they possess that result in admiration by others.

We also have local cultural camps in (SE Qld & NE NSW) for small groups of between 12 and 30 individuals. Our mentoring sessions and role modelling include such things as workshops; cultural activities; music lessons and walks.
