Our Mission: To provide opportunities for young people to engage in personal development, leadership and performance programs that are purposeful and transformational.
A unique, holistic learning environment for unique, holistic young people!
If you are a parent, educator or carer of a young person in 2019, then you will most likely be wondering how you can support that young person to achieve the potential that you see within them, and that they often can’t see for themselves.
The adolescent years are a critical time of self-discovery, exploration of values and beliefs, and massive growth in all areas of development – social, emotional, physical, psychological, behavioural, spiritual and neurological.
Neurologically, the adolescent brain is in a state of constant and significant re-wiring, undergoing two important processes – myelination and pruning. As a result, we notice that the behaviour of the adolescent can be confusing and worrying! Poor concentration, poor time management, lack of planning, an inability to recognise the consequences of risky behaviour, are all developmentally appropriate as the area of the brain responsible for “executive function” is still developing.
At The YACC project, we “get it”!
As lifelong learners ourselves, we are constantly researching the latest scientific and evidence-based information about this exciting time in a young person’s life, and refer to a number of well published and reputable sources for the theory that provides the foundation for our programs.
As a result, you can be assured that your adolescent will be treated as the unique human that they are. They will be safe, nurtured and respected. Their experience of learning will be positive, productive and game-changing!
Passionate about youth development and learning
All of our practitioners are chosen because that are passionate specialists in the areas of adolescent development and learning, and they all undertake our unique, holistically focused, training program based on our founding values of:
- ETHOS (Integrity, ethics, personal leadership)
- PATHOS (Compassion, empathy, understanding)
- LOGOS (Wisdom through learning and experiencing)
These values can be linked back to the ancient Greek Philosophy of Influence (Leadership) and our culture and operations are all developed using these guiding principles and beliefs.
We believe these values are crucial to the forming of great RELATIONSHIPS – with self, others and life.
