16-48 hours 16-48 hours of fun activities over the next 3 to 9 months

If you’re 15 to 17 years old, this is the chance you’ve been waiting for. Want to have a positive impact, explore independence, boost your work readiness and CV, while having fun along the way?

You know that buzz you feel when you nail something you thought was near to impossible? Imagine that, but for every day you’re with us. Throw that in with meeting a new crowd (who might end up as mates for life!), taking on challenges together…and still having some time to recharge and chill. Pretty great, right?

You’ll pick up a bunch of skills designed to help you smash the whole ‘adulting’ thing and live life to the fullest.

Time to become world and work ready!
