Experience leadership training on a whole new level!

Important Notice: Although we are accepting applications for our course to the Cook Islands, this trip will only be confirmed if/when the NZ and CI governments announce a travel bubble. Course fees will only be required after an official travel confirmation.

Our Pacific Student Leaders Program is a week-long course that sees young people from across both the Pacific Islands, New Zealand and Australia come together to develop their personal and team leadership skills through fun, unique, hands-on activities. Each intake is held in a different location across the Pacific, with the last intake being held in Rarotonga (Cook Islands), and the next on the beautiful Norfolk Island.

The course is designed to get students into a new environment which exposes them to a different culture and way of life. They will have an opportunity to travel the island, learn about the rich history, experience the tasty local cuisine, meet and collaborate with students from different schools and locals. Our courses have been hugely beneficial for students to gain a new perspective, build useful skills to take into the final years of school and after, make life-long friends and unforgettable memories.



We've partnered with Tereora College to host this course, along with support from local organisations & stakeholders.
