Workshops

We deliver several workshops aimed to educate and assist in the overall development of young people. These are workshops we believe are necessary for many young people, and are topics that are often left undiscussed in general school lessons, or aren't discussed is as much detail as we believe is important. They are tailored to equip young people with the knowledge they need to develop healthy attitudes either with themselves or with others.

These workshops are delivered across Victoria in Schools and Youth Centres and are available for booking now.

Puberty (For Girls)

This workshop is aimed at teaching young girls from grades 3-6 about:

  • Developing a healthy attitude, mindset and behaviour towards themselves and others as they begin to go through hormonal changes. As well as how to develop healthy relationships with others.
  • Personal hygiene - general and intimate.
  • "How your body is changing and why."
  • Preparing for menstruation.
  • "Where babies come from," the basics.

Appropriate information and resources will be provided along with the workshop so that young girls can remain informed with accurate, real-world information. This workshop aims to break down the barriers of knowledge and bust myths often told to young girls, so that they are equipped with the knowledge they need to maintain a healthy relationship with their body as they grow up.

Online Safety

This workshop aims to provide children with the tools they need to stay safe while venturing into the ever-changing online world. Including:

  • Cyberbullying
  • Social Media 101 - what content is okay, and what isn't.
  • The risks involved with certain behaviour while on Social Media
  • Keeping personal information safe while online
  • Scams, spam and how to recognise it.

In our digital world, being safe and learning appropriate behaviour is now more important than ever. While you can't always control everything your child does online, teaching them to be responsible and the risks involved with risky behaviour can help them stay safe.

Deaf Acceptance & Independence

We accept and work with children of all backgrounds, abilities/disabilities and a big part of what we do is to support and assist Deaf children. To help achieve this, we run specific educational workshops on Deaf awareness and acceptance. These workshops include;

  • Teaching hearing children about the deaf culture, their language, values, behaviour, technologies and identifying bilingual and bicultural people and what this means.
  • Teaching deaf children/people about their own self-identification.
  • Discussing the ways in which children can become independent individuals.
  • Improving their social and communication skills. This includes learning how to adapt to the hearing community/situations such as in a work environment. We want to teach deaf children how to be an assertive communicator.
  • A sense of belonging to deaf children.

This workshop aims to educate hearing children that will come into contact with Deaf people, as well as helping Deaf children in learning how to accept themselves and how to become independent young adults.

One-on-One Parental Guidance Workshops

Finding out your child is Deaf can be a jarring experience. You may find yourself feeling unprepared in what to do or how to assist your child, especially if you have never had any experience with the Deaf community before. And that's okay. A big part of what we do is educate, and we applaud all parents who wish to be more proactive in this scenario.

So, we also offer one-on-one workshop sessions with the parents of our Deaf clients, to provide information regarding services, equipment, devices and tools to help in the upbringing and development of their child. We will cover the basics from accepting your child's disability, to utilising accessible services.
