These programs are founded upon the premise that every life counts and has intrinsic value and fosters an awareness of this belief.

‘Body and soul, I am wonderfully made’
The focus for these sessions is for each participant to understand for themselves that they are valuable. Their uniqueness is something to celebrate and they have been wonderfully made.
These sessions explore the power of choice and the power that decisions have on shaping a person’s future. This is addressed through practical sessions about feelings, convictions, boundaries, decision making and problem solving.
‘I have a hope and a future’
Purpose is examined through exploring hopes, dreams and desires. Goal setting, discussions on potential practical activities including a dream collage and to live out a purpose filled adventurous life.
