Human beings are built for connection, physically, mentally and emotionally. We all seek to be part of a greater whole and thrive within community. To belong is a key foundation to building self efficacy and resilience
Everyone needs to feel safe to share their feelings and express their individuality. We need to be able to provide an environment where young people are able to share their stories without judgement and develop strong communication and conflict resolution skills.
We need to be developing creative, adaptable thinkers for the future, individuals who have a deep sense of purpose and universal responsibility. This can only be achieved if they develop a strong sense of who they are and how they fit within society. We must celebrate each individuals unique gifts, strengths and talents
Our presentations are designed to relate to all members of the school community including students, staff and parents. Topics are engaging, relevant and backed by evidence based research.
Interactive workshops for students provide hands on experiences of the Rites of Passage framework
We provide training to your staff in all aspects of the Rites of Passage framework in order for them to incorporate iinto the delivery of their programs
In all our dealings with Dr Arne we have found him very professional to work with and inspiring.
He engaged the audience on an intellectual and an emotional level and used humour and warmth to connect to everyone.
As a facilitator Arne is bold, informed and experienced. The outcomes of this event were profound. We couldn’t wait to book him in again for this year!
“Dr Arne was articulate and informative, but most importantly, he listened to the concerns that were raised and offered suggestions and alternatives that were genuine and achievable. Dr Arne’s team are organised and efficient and assisted with all areas from booking and advertising, to set up on the evening. We will certainly be inviting Dr Arne to speak with our community again in the future.”
“His sprinkling of anecdotal musing, storytelling and delivery of matter of fact information kept the parent audience tuned and attentive. Every parent took many messages away, ready and eager to get more involved with their teenage children.”
“The engagement and learning from the experiences with Arne will be something that the boys will carry with them for the rest of their lives.”
“We were blessed to have Arne run a provocative, warm and meaningful program for Father’s and Son’s at our school as part of our Year 10 Boys to Men program. As a facilitator Arne is bold, informed and experienced. The outcomes of this event were profound. We couldn’t wait to book him in again for this year!”
