The five P.O.W.E.R Coaching steps guides each young person through a transformational process, where they are able to connect to their strengths and design an inspiring and hope filled life, career and school performance pathway plan that matches their vision, values and aspirations. The coaching plans then provide a guide for all future coach, parent or peer lead coaching sessions, to ensure young people stay focused on their goals and are supported to “fast-track” their learning and take action to achieve positive and lasting behaviour change.

What youth professionals are saying…

The CYPFS Training, Robyn Chellew delivered was fantastic professional development and up-skilling for all staff. Post-training I was delighted to access all the modules which contain practical, colour- coded and up-to-date career & life coaching resources that I could immediately incorporate into my existing Jobs Lab training sessions (job application process from woe to go). I have been using the CYPFS resources for over two years now and get wonderful results. I highly recommend CYPFS for youth and careers practitioners and anyone else working with youth!

Tania SaccoACFE Training Coordinator

“The CYPFS program assists us to provide a high quality and consistent approach to case management across the agency and is getting great outcomes with the young people we support. I am also a passionate CYPFS Trainer and deliver the leaders training to other youth agencies and schools across the state.”

Kerrie SellenManager, Whitelion, South Australia

“For several years we have been incorporating CYPFS into our aboriginal peer mentoring programs using the resources both one to one and in groups, providing opportunities for the young people to set meaningful goals and develop their own unique career and life pathway plan with outstanding results.”

Lee-Anne SmithCEO Halo leadership development agency inc. Western Australia

“I presented the Life and Career Coaching workshop with the community VCAL kids. It was fantastic!!! I thoroughly enjoyed presenting it, and the kids were great. When we were finished, I asked them for some feedback and they all felt it was really helpful and good fun. I am really enthused about the program and feel it will be of great benefit for us all in the Youth Pathway Program.”

“Fantastic practical toolkit to get real answers and workable goals for young peoples future. Highly recommended!”

Christina Borger – LCP Coordinator Rivers Regional Youth Deveplopment Service Inc, Northern Territory, Australia

“I found the training really informative for myself and for the young people I have been working with in schools. Since completing the training, I’ve delivered the program in small groups and with individuals. Ive found it an excellent tool, to get the imagination working, to have a vehicle to connect with, which is positive, to help a young person see how something as boring as school actually fits into their life rather than them being forced to go there. Its very empowering for a young person to take control over their life, even if they arent quite old enough to make every decision. They know they’re on THEIR path”.

Kerry Howell, Youth worker, Mission Australia, South Australia
