Resilience, Self Awareness & Leadership through the Arts!

With Kerryn’s background in Corporate training and Art Therapy, the Youthpass Australia certified 5 day program teaches young people social skills, self awareness and other soft skills essential for higher education; the workplace; independent learning and living whatever interest or preferred career path. The program teaches leadership, resilience, confidence, and self-awareness along with social and emotional wellbeing and develops support networks within each small and nurturing group. Kerryn empowers the participants to prepare them for their transition through higher year levels at school and their transition from school.
