Building Tomorrow's Leaders
Leadership development can provide many benefits to young people. Firstly, it can help them develop self-awareness and self-confidence, which are essential traits for effective leadership. Through activities such as team building and problem-solving exercises, young people can also learn how to communicate effectively, build relationships, and collaborate with others.
Our leadership development programs can also help young people develop important life skills such as goal-setting, decision-making, and self-responsibility. These skills are not only valuable in leadership roles but also in their personal and academic lives.
Furthermore, leadership development can provide opportunities for young people to explore their passions and develop their interests. By being exposed to different experiences and perspectives, they can also develop empathy, cultural competence, and a sense of social responsibility.
Overall, leadership development can be a valuable experience for young people, providing them with the skills, confidence, and experiences needed to become effective leaders in all aspects of their lives.
Jess has been facilitating and mentoring teens & young adults in personal growth and development programs for 6 years with personal leadership, social and emotional development programs.
Young Leader Programs
The Building Tomorrow's Leaders Program is a perfect option for companies or organisations looking to nurture the upcoming generation of leaders by cultivating their personal leadership skills. This program aims to equip emerging leaders with the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to lead with confidence and purpose in both personal and professional domains. The program comprises several elements, including the foundational Building Block Leadership Horse Program, which provides experiential learning opportunities for participants to develop emotional awareness, communication skills, and leadership qualities through interactions with horses. In addition, the program also includes an EDISC behavioural profile analysis for each participant, which helps to identify their strengths and areas for development in terms of their communication and interpersonal styles. The program concludes with an introduction to several critical leadership principles from the Emotional Fitness framework. These principles can aid participants in developing self-awareness and relationship management skills, as well as responding to uncertainty in their workplace. By incorporating these principles, participants can better navigate challenges and obstacles while also building stronger relationships with their colleagues and superiors. Additionally, these principles can be applied not just in the workplace, but in all aspects of life.
For Schools & Youth Organisations
The Young Women's Social and Emotional Growth Program for teenage girls is now available to schools and youth organisations in the SE, South Australia. This program is a combination of the horse-led learning curriculum & small group coaching with Jess. Schools & youth organisations like yours work hard to develop engaged learners and support your student's holistic development. We work with you to reach objectives that parallel yours. Our horses require participants to develop and action personal leadership and interpersonal competencies. The program focuses on increasing self-awareness, understanding of others, and building a positive culture within peer groups.

Jess believes that investing in the social and emotional growth of young people is crucial for their personal development and future success. By providing them with the tools and skills needed to navigate through challenges and build positive relationships, teenage girls can become confident and empowered leaders in their own lives and communities.
