ACE Leadership

Cultural & Environmental Immersion

Our Cultural and Environmental experiential leadership expeditions build potential, grow real leadership skills, cultural awareness and push young people beyond comfort zones to find their magic within.

Our ACE Leadership program has been developed through our passion for 3 things.

  • Aboriginal history and cultural awareness – Spending time to build awareness, create empathy and inspire future generations.
  • Community Service – Finding ways to contributing meaningfully to the world beyond ourselves.
  • Environmental Stewardship – Connecting to the natural environment and being challenged to leave it better than we found it.

The expedition nature of the program supports the development of character and a strong sense of community building within the cohort.

AdventureWorks has built a really challenging and rewarding program for teenagers moving into adulthood. It offers several opportunities for students to participate, lead, give feedback or simply just challenge themselves through their own choices. Along the way, students learn a lot about themselves and develop confidence, trust, independence and resilience. This is probably the best school camp experience I have seen in my 18 years of teaching and I also find it rewarding for me personally and professionally.
