Provide a sense of self
The purpose is to show young people how to believe themselves and their potential. To provide hands-on experiences that teach them about their creative power to establish their destiny.
By learning to think outside the square these individuals will imitate the most holistically successful people in the world.
They will learn to feel good about themselves no matter how their circumstance, history, heritage, gender, or distinguishing characteristics are defined.
By understanding and learning that the power to move mountains is within, these young people will call on their inner resources rather than becoming dependent on external people, substances and objects.
There will be a sense of community
Friends and friendships will be developed as they learn about the purpose and function of relationships. Understanding the purpose and magic of relationships will influence each young persons’ ability to become leaders in the community.
They will come to an understanding that as individuals they can build castles, and together they can build worlds. As a movement, they will join together and work to change the quality of living conditions of all peoples throughout the world.
They will contribute to the development and sustainability of their local community through service, thereby providing inspiration and motivation for all young people within the community.
By making connections and developing joint initiatives with the wider community, they will come to understand the effects of being an active member in terms of raising social capital.
Each individual will have a sense of achievement
Learning how to make choices based on conscious living rather than unconscious living, these young people will meet personal challenges and fears, with the support of other young people.
The opportunity to ‘learn’ and grow by participating in activities and challenges will be given within a safe environment. With the many successes and failures will come a personal framework for happiness rather than endless striving.
Every young person will receive acknowledgement and recognition for being who they are, rather than where they came from or ‘what’ they are.
By way of training, they will develop and engage a personally customised plan for success in their interpersonal, work, community and spiritual life quadrants.
By learning to run meetings, plan and manage activities, and undertake their own learning, these young people will exhibit confidence, humility and pride in who they are and what they can achieve.
Learning a sense of responsibility
Through experiential learning and group training, these young people will come to understanding everyone has a responsibility to self, family, community and the planet.
By understanding, they have the power to change their life by making choices, they will be capable of taking positions of responsibility within the organisation and their respective community.
By learning the purpose, philosophy, and practice of holistic leadership, they will become active leaders in their chosen careers. Many will aspire to positions of responsibility within commerce and the community.
Within a safe environment, they will come to an understanding that there are rights and privileges, choices and consequences, laws and agreements, and that information brings power. They will learn how power brings responsibility, and responsibility brings choice, choice brings consequences. It will be the choice they each make in every moment that will prescribe their destiny.
