We all know a young person who deserves to DISCOVER their potential!
Is your teen struggling with school, friends or motivation?
Would you like them to be more confident in themselves?
Do you find it difficult to communicate with your teen?
Have you noticed they lack the confidence needed to enjoy school or commit to new activities?
We all know how hard it is to feel confident and motivated when going through tough life phases, especially those teenage years. It can be daunting and may lead to young people shutting out the people they need most.
Sometimes a new perspective on life can be just what your teen needs
Discovery is a LIFE-CHANGING personal development programme
"(Discovery is) probably the best investment that we have ever made for our daughter's future. When we picked her up after her week, the difference in her attitude was a game changer, she was animated, confident, happy …We would thoroughly recommend this course to every parent, such a game changer for your children and worth every single penny."
"I now want to give everything my 100% and stop wasting my life doing nothing."
"I learnt how to be more positive and give my absolute 100% in everything I do in life, and have more confidence in myself."
"I can’t be perfect, but I can be and do ‘excellent’ when I set my mind to it and give 100%."

What is Discovery for Teens?
Discovery is no ordinary experience! Teens connect with other teens for a week and make exceptional bonds, do extraordinary things, learn (and retain) tools to help them face challenges - at school, tomorrow or in their lifetime.
