Veteran Mentors

The Junior Leader Program is designed to support children struggling with self-esteem, lack of respect, poor behaviours and technology addiction. With key lessons in values and work ethic, the programs are also great for all kids looking to challenge themselves – all while accomplishing something they might have never thought possible.

The programs are developed by Defence Force veterans who have experienced the impact of military-style training on behaviour and perspective. Using skills acquired in the Australian Defence Force, the veterans instil essential values that help participants forge successful life paths.

The Junior Leaders learn the value of respect and the importance of courage for achieving personal goals. They’ll also learn other valuable lessons, including:

  • Why initiative is vital to overcoming challenges before they become insurmountable
  • How working as a team is more effective than going solo
  • That integrity should underpin everything that they do. 

Using these skills as a roadmap for life, your child will be able to successfully tackle challenges of all shapes and sizes and have the ability to do so with confidence – whether at school, at home, in social circles and beyond.
