As one of four Master Instructors in Australia, I am sincerely privileged by the opportunities the program has given me. I found the program while working for the South Australian government agency, Community Residential Care. After completing the 3 Day Workshop, I was asked to deliver the program to young people who had experienced trauma and/or abuse. Witnessing the outcomes, I saw first hand the power of the program, the power to connect adults to adults, adults to young people and young people to young people. For me, Rock & Water is the most authentic program that connects people on a deeper emotional and physical level meaning the learning has a greater impact on each participant.
I am passionate about positive role modelling and assisting young people to reach their full potential while undertaking the Rock & Water program. I take pride in the training and programs I deliver and we always aim to create positive environments and experiences to enable young people and adults to grow within the program.
The Rock and Water program is delivered in many countries around the world by teachers, youth workers, counsellors, parents and peer leadership facilitators. The program is used by schools - private and public, primary and secondary - youth groups, government and non-government organisations, and Aboriginal communities to name a few.
