Coaching YP in Supported Accommodation

Recently, I was invited by Jane, who manages a youth accommodation home in regional Victoria, to come and deliver career coaching session with the young people she supports.


Without the direct support of family, being hopeful about the future and making a successful transition to work or further training can be a real challenge. 


During the session, everyone created 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 imagine possibilities, dream big and be hopeful and excited about their future.

I could see everyones confidence, self-belief and motivation build as they shared their unique strengths and their dreams and goals together.   


It was a privilege to hear their stories unfold and help them create a personalised pathway plan of what they will do to move ahead.  Jane will be there to support them with their plans with great love and care.

"THANK YOU for your time with the group.  They all said they found the day really useful in identifying their own interests and strengths, and considering potential future paths. I really loved the way they helped each other identify each other’s qualities as well."

Young people said:

“The career coaching session helped me see my plan for the future much more clearly”

really helped me reflect on my strengths and look forward to my future. 

“The session was great, as it helped me to think seriously about possible career paths that would suit me before I go into year 12, thanks

It helped me clarify what is important to me and made me feel more confident about the path I will take”
