Youth Opportunities

Students in Year 10 will have the opportunity to be involved in the Youth Opportunities Personal Leadership Program, within term 3 and 4.

This program has been successfully delivered in Murray Bridge High School over the last 8 years. The results have been so outstanding, that Murray Bridge High School is pleased to provide students with this life changing opportunity.

Youth Opportunities is a not for profit organisation working within schools to help young people realise their potential. They provide a unique Personal Leadership Program for selected Year 10 students, as well as ongoing support and mentoring for graduates until they leave school. There are also a number of opportunities to gain scholarships for graduates in education and resources.

Over a ten week period young people from all backgrounds learn how to be the very best they can be and gain more direction, improve relationships, increase motivation and confidence in all areas of their lives. The intensive motivational program is delivered outside of the school environment for one day a week, and trains the ‘rules of life’ with a powerful formula and how-to strategies.

The program comprises 14 lessons that provide a thinking framework to help create a positive, happy and successful life. Through their involvement, students can gain 10 credits towards the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE). Two trainers use state of the art DVD, group work and one to one coaching to cultivate and encourage learning. Program components include goal planning, the development of successful habits, communicating using win/win techniques, and the development of a positive mental attitude. By engaging in this program students find purpose, understanding and motivation to succeed at school, home and future employment. The program ends with a graduation ceremony where students share their successes to people important in their lives.

For your students’ opportunity to be involved, they will need to attend a selection and information session that is run by the School Based Coordinator within term 3 and 4.
