“We offer training in career development to professionals in the field, when we have asked what their best tools were, those who had done CYPFS training chose it as number one without fail.”Garry Gilfoy Counselling and Career Development Lecturer, South Australia
“I began using the “Coaching Young People for Success” program in 2017 with my Year 11 students. This was the first time we had introduced this course in our education support classrooms. They were able to identify their goals, aspirations and the potential steps to be taken and the skills needed for a secure and fulfilling future. Students participated every week and were fully engaged. CYFPS modules helped our students in working towards their transition plans and goals. I highly recommend CYPFS for schools and anyone else working with youth!
