Developing Leaders

Focus and Focus2

The Focus and Focus2 programs provide young women from high-needs schools with the essential leadership skills they need to engage in a successful, meaningful career. Female executive role models mentor the students in small groups to develop their skills and build their confidence, encouraging them to aspire to senior roles in business and the community. Participants may already be holding leadership positions or are about to enter into leadership positions in their schools.

GOALS

GOALS  is a one-on-one mentoring program designed to raise the aspirations of students in their middle year of high school. The aim is to broaden awareness of the personal, educational and vocational choices available, maintain student engagement at school and encourage the completion of Year 12 and further tertiary study. Students are matched with a corporate mentor in sessions that include setting goals, communication, managing finances and preparation for the workforce.

Partners in Learning

Partners in Learning (PiL) supports business and educational leaders by linking them together to share experiences and expertise, solve problems and explore leadership challenges. The focus is to enhance professional growth in a mutually beneficial, co-mentoring relationship. It provides both leadership support for school principals beyond the education environment and the opportunity for business leaders to make a significant contribution to a school and the broader community.
