School-based Programs

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 need 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.

Programs on offer for 2022

Moving from primary to secondary schools can be tough and very challenging for many young people. The Grade Six Support Program has modules schools can select to focus on that will support, inform and resource young people with the skills and tools they need to navigate this transition. All modules include a variety of resilience building activities and focused informed discussions.
