  • “We were attracted to The Visionaries because they truly understand how to engage young adults in exploring themselves and their behaviours both as individuals and as a group of peers.”

  • “We were all left filled with so much joy and emotion. I felt a lightness of being that I have not felt in a long time and we were all so excited and moved by it that we went around telling everyone how amazing it was.”

    AMELIA, PARTICIPANT
  • “I’ve grown, I’ve become vulnerable, I’ve loved, I’ve cried, I’ve learnt. This journey has allowed me to challenge myself and find a little bit of myself that I didn’t know was there, a person that I never had to meet, so I feel that this experience has allowed me to meet a little more of myself…”

    RHODA, TEACHER

Our Vision

Education is our most powerful tool to lead us towards a thriving future. Schools can model to the rest of society what it means to live in a harmonious, thriving community. That’s why we help students, teachers and parents to have healthy and trusting relationships in school, develop emotional resilience, nurture positive self-worth and create a culture of ecological leadership in school.

We support holistic school development and participatory community building through transformative rites of passage experiences, wellbeing training and nature connection.

By vitalising ourselves we vitalise the world.
