Supporting Your Transition into Adulthood
Completing school and moving into adulthood is a major achievement!
Transitioning away from school can be challenging though. Becoming independent means learning new skills, making friends outside of school, and knowing how to look after yourself.
If you’re a school-aged swara participant who’s looking at post-school options over the coming years, our School Transition Program is for you.
swara’s School Transition Program offers extraordinary opportunities to grow, learn and achieve your goals. It all happens in a fun-filled environment where you get to meet great people, try new things and enjoy your school holidays!
There are two sessions per day, with two options per session. Each session is focused on capacity building and helping you develop life skills that will help you as you become more independent.
Capacity Building Activities
One of the biggest challenges that comes with leaving school is deciding what to do with your future. Will you go to TAFE or university? Find a job? Explore other opportunities?
There’s no limit to what you can accomplish, and swara is here to make sure you reach your full potential.
Our School Transition Program is focused on building your capacity and having fun while we’re at it. We offer activities like:
