Kingston Youth Services offer a range of FREE personal development workshops and programs to all schools in Kingston that are best suited for students aged between 12-18yrs.
Our programs are designed to complement the school curriculum whilst being responsive to community trends and students needs which the curriculum may not cover.
Programs can be delivered in a variety of formats but all are designed around experiential learning and small group activities.
These programs can be tailored to meet the needs of your school or can be offered as pre-packaged programs. If you would like a program tailored to your school’s needs please contact Youth Services to discuss this further.
