Recently I was invited by Jane, a manager of a youth accommodation house in regional Victoria, to come and deliver a CYPFS coaching session with a great group of young people she supports.
Without the direct support of living with family, being hopeful for the future and making a successful transition to work or further training can be a real challenge.
During the session, everyone got to create a “strengths-based” personal profile and a vision for the type of life and work they would find meaningful, fun and inspiring. Coaching in a group creates an environment where young people can support and encourage each other to dream big and be hopeful and excited about the future.
I could see their confidence, motivation and self-belief improve as they all shared their unique strengths and their dreams and goals.
It was a privilege to hear their stories and help them create a personalised pathway plan of what they can do to move ahead. Jane will be there to support them with their plans with great love and care.
