The Junior Leader Program was created by Australian military veterans who understand the importance of respect and the impact of military training on life perspective. Deploying lessons derived from their experiences in the Defence Force, the Veteran Mentors are able to instil values such as respect, courage, resilience, initiative and teamwork.
As part of our troubled teen programs, participants also get the opportunity to push themselves and engage in a range of fun activities that incorporate lessons based on these values.
Following successful completion of the Junior Leader Program, participants utilise their learnings to forge successful relationships with family members, to help them overcome challenges and to achieve more goals. Whether at home, school or with their friends, our Junior Leaders are well placed to handle whatever life throws at them, and can do so with confidence.
Some of the activities involved in our disciplinary boot camps include physical and nutritional education, making beds, polishing boots, ironing uniforms, cleaning their barracks, and military marching. By completing routine tasks and placing value on them, participants begin to take pride in their workmanship and are able to continue this mindset at home and in life.
As well as participating in these routine activities, our Junior Leaders have a ball getting active with the chance to go rock climbing and abseiling, as well as having a go at a high ropes course, an Army-style obstacle course, survival training and skydiving.
Our boot camps for troubled youth in Queensland are run at purpose-built, school camp facilities. The advantage of choosing these sites for our camp is the natural surrounds, isolation from distractions and vicinity to natural waterfalls and bushlands. At the camp, participants are provided with bunk bed accommodation and access to amenities, as well as regular meals prepared with nutrition in mind.
