Williamstown Junior Football Club is taking the lead in supporting young people and their families to reach their full potential.  This comes in the form of the Williamstown Junior Football Leadership Series.  This program is impactful and engaging.

Since it’s inception, Game Changers has identified distinct differences between the kinds of conversations and leadership training necessary for teenagers of different ages. More specifically:

  • 11 – 12 year olds require conversations about preparing for their teenage years;
  • 13 – 14 year olds require conversations about peer pressure and the kinds of things they are likely to be introduced to/confronted with now and in the near future;
  • 15 – 16 year olds require conversations about risk taking, positive decision making, and their relationship with their parents; and
  • 17 – 19 year olds require conversations about becoming an adult, taking responsibility for their life circumstance, and being the agent of the quality and success of their future.

The Williamstown FC Leadership Series includes four 120-minute workshops tailored for teenagers and their parents.  Each workshop is designed for different age groups.

WORKSHOP #1

Preparing for teenagehood

11 – 12 year olds + parents.

WORKSHOP #2

Peer Pressure and the inevitable future

13 – 14 year olds + parents.

WORKSHOP #3

Risk taking and establishing independence

11 – 12 year olds + parents.

WORKSHOP #4

How to Adult 101

17 – 19 year olds +/- parents.

Workshops #1, #2 and #3​ will separate the kids and the parents for part of the workshop and then come back together. The reason for this is the conversation with parents is different to kids. Also, kids often need space from their parents to properly open up and feel safe to share what’s going on for them.

Workshop #4​ will have parents separate from young adults. The reason for this is because many young adults will no longer be dependent on their parents and/or deliberately establishing their independence from their parents. Parents are welcome to take part in their own separate workshop which will explore how they can best support their child while they are establishing their independence.

THE MEN OF HONOUR CAMP

The Men of Honour Camp powerfully connects boys and their father/male mentors. Our expert facilitation team deliver a contemporary Rites of Passage experience leveraging traditional processes, including; separation, story-sharing, challenge, vision and goal setting, acknowledging unique gifts and talents, and reintegration back into community.

This powerful process leaves boys and their father/male mentors intimately connected with a strong sense of the man they want to become and the kind of relationship they want moving forwards.

This program is available to boys and young men aged 13 – 14 and their father/male mentor from the Williamstown Junior Football Club.
