The CYPFS modules give us an engaging framework to help provide our Aspire students with precious space and time to deeply reflect and plan for their future. With so much positivity these activities give scope to dream, consider and plan for serious action without trepidation. In a world that can be so busy it’s a wonderful thing to provide an opportunity to deeply think about who we are, I believe it will help our participants forge their own life goals with courage and confidence. I believe our coaches will get as much out of the experience as the young people we work with. I hope that through the power of listening, deeply listening, that coaches will find that everyone and anyone can be a teacher.

“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”

In 2010 the Student Support committee (SSLI) brought CYPFS to North Bay, Canada to help us introduce a common coaching methodology across the public and catholic schools, health, child protection and youth justice services.We have now trained 8 trainers who have trained over 200 leaders and have supported the translation of the Program into French. The training and modules are getting a great response from all sectors and is having a great impact with young people.”

“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.”

"It was great to be apart of this youth coaching training. It is such an excellent program, with an abundance of resources that I can use to coach young people in all areas of their life.

“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.”

“I have encouraged all our school career practitioners in Western Australia to use the Life Business CYPFS program. It is a holistic approach to help create a career development culture in our schools and assists students to explore all aspects of their life, learning and work.”

"CYPFS is an empowering opportunity for young people to become re-engaged and excited about their own lives and futures."

"CYPFS forms the basis of our Pathway planning for all students from Year 9 through to Year 12. Meeshed with a few other bits and pieces we feel it is a vital part of our students career planning and assists them to stay on track and plan a life they would love to lead!"

"As a newby to the Territory I found almost 30 years of teaching very helpful with the initial shock. However if I had known about this program earlier and undergone the course earlier, the shock may have been only a surprise and both my personal and professional life would have been so well informed and probably gone a lot smoother."

"An effective easy to follow approach to use with young people to inspire them to reach achievable goals"

"CYPFS provides an excellent framework for goal setting and career pathway planning Highly recommended"

"This week we had our first go at delivering the career coaching program to year 11’s. We broke it up into boys and girls, girls day one and boys day two for four periods with three of us delivering (about 20 students each). Feedback from students was amazingly positive. Basically all students felt they had a clearer direction than before it. During my own sessions I could feel when students were connecting with what we were trying to achieve and a great deal of the worksheets went into greater detail and demonstrated greater effort than you might see these kids put in, in a normal class. When comparing this with what students had experienced in careers education in the past they said “it’s impossible to compare, it’s motivating” and that was from a class of boys!!! It seemed to me that students felt motivated and empowered to make a difference in their own lives. Hope you're feeling as positive about what you are doing as I am right now."

"Excellent Stuff! Very practical and student /staff friendly.

"Extremely useful program that can really improve teacher/student connectedness thus enhancing positive planning, goal setting and pathways for all students".

"it is the coaching for the coaches. At every point you are in control and in the know and I was left feeling more confident, clear courageous towards coaching young people"

"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". x

"The Program has transformed my job as a Career and Transitions worker and helped me introduce a systematic and sustainable way of assisting large numbers of young people develop a tailored made plan for their future.”

"I really appreciate the way the Program affirms young people from all works of life. Young people will take ownership of their future and become something inspiring to future generations! Imagine how great our country would be if all our children had access to this Program"

"We are very fortunate to offer our Year 10 girls the excellent “Coaching Young People For Success program.” The holistic approach of the program as well as the close involvement of our pastoral staff means very positive outcomes for our girls in planning and exploring options to be the best they can in their life and work."

"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!"

"This is a process with great integrity. I look forward to using it "

:Just to let you know I have been using the CYPFS Program and have thoroughly enjoyed using it. It's a powerful tool and students have given me most positive feedback from it.,"

An excellent program based around empowering and equipping students to make positive changes to their lives. I will be using the life wheel and goal setting one to one with my students too.

CYPFS is a valuable resource that provides me with a structure and a process to support young people to be successful.
