Recently, I was invited by Jane, who manages a youth accommodation home in regional Victoria, to come and deliver a 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.
