Workshops and Training


Our workshops are never tick-a-box, same-old-same-old year after year because – boring!

Run them as stand alone, or for even better results, through ‘Operation Hide the Veggies’ as mini ‘courses’ (with a certificate at the end for attending the full course!) 

Powerpoint-free zone

We make our workshops more like a fun fire-side chat… so your young people can feel comfortable to share what’s really going on for them… and so we can help them resolve their challenges in real time.  In fact we’re often surprised at just how much they want to share!

Our workshops are ‘proactively responsive’ – meaning that we are proactive in the way we tackle real-world problems and responsive in the way we manage each group… that’s because all of our coaches are master facilitators – not just people delivering ‘content’. We’ll go where others won’t… 

One size DOES NOT fit all

We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach, because every brain, body chemistry, entrenched behaviour pattern, past experience, belief, value, culture, family history and just about everything uniquely shapes the way we do things.

All of our coaches have spent years training in ways of understanding, un-learning and re-learning complex behaviour patterns to create useful, sustainable and resourceful new behaviours for young people.

staff and leaders training

Train your staff and youth leaders in basic human behaviour knowledge so they can create positive outcomes, make better decisions and manage more for themselves.

Through these trainings they will gain the skills to:
– create better outcomes (for everyone)
– know how to manage different types of people
– reduce the amount of situations that get escalated
– calm rather than inflame situations

Our most popular trainings are:

I.C.A.R.E – the student-focused alternative to first aid training for mental health.

“I learned how to start a conversation about mental health”
Armin, Residential Advisor – Campus Living Villages

The I.C.A.R.E Program creates a safe place to proactively learn more about human behaviour and what to do if things go wrong, reducing stigma of mental health and increasing help-seeking behaviour.

I – using ‘I’ statements
C – concern
A – awareness of change in behaviour
R – respectful conversation & resources
E – empathy & escalate

The ICARE program is perfect for students, student leaders and staff

A subject that in the past has been boring and over the heads of our young people, you treated with enthusiasm and in a non-clinical and fun approach from the angle of how people ‘tick’, being more relevant to our teams.

Michael Cowan
