The YACC Project

Unique, holistic and future thinking

Our Vision: Inspiring young people to perform to their fullest potential

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.

The YACC Project offers the following key areas of support for young people and their parents. educators and carers:

  • Lifecode for Youth Coaching
  • Learning/Training Programs for Youth
  • Parents, Educators and Carers Resource Hub


What People are Saying…

Desrae, Mum of Dylan, aged 16 years

My son Dylan has been participating in the Emerging Z -program for the past eight months and loves it. It has complemented his school studies and he has applied what he has been learning to his working environment which has lead him to a promotion opportunity and being nominated for the Peel Bright Minds Young Champion Award. I have watched his confidence and self esteem soar in the past few months and he has a very clear strategic plan for his future which has been beautiful to watch. He has really enjoyed the learning environment, rather than a traditional education setting. I believe this program and approach supports the transition into the real world and inspires the young person to find their way with confidence and independence. I would highly recommended it am very happy with our investment.
