Experience leadership training on a whole new level!

Experience Leadership Training On A Whole New Level!

Our Pacific Student Leaders Program is a week-long course that sees young people from across both the Pacific Islands, Australia and New Zealand come together to develop their personal and team leadership skills through fun, unique, hands-on activities. Each intake is held in a different location across the Pacific, with the last intake being held in Rarotonga (Cook Islands), and the next on the beautiful Norfolk Island!

The course is designed to get students into a new environment which exposes them to a different culture and way of life. They will have an opportunity to travel the island, learn about the rich history, experience the tasty, local cuisine, meet and collaborate with students from different schools and locals. Our courses have been hugely beneficial for students to gain a new perspective, build useful skills to take into the final years of school and after, make life-long friends and unforgettable memories.

Our Fiji course was so impactful it even made it onto the Fiji News!

"The course taught me more than I ever thought it could. Through being with a group of strangers, not only did I gain better teamwork skills and confidence through awesome activities, I also gained so much self-leadership which I have found so useful with my leadership roles back at school. The cultural experience was so eye opening and the 'strangers' I met turned out to be people I would call 'life-long friends'. I would 100% recommend a Future Leaders trip."
