The programs continue to show results, with strong partnerships with a range of services and organisations.

Students As LifeStyle Activists (SALSA) is a peer-led leadership program designed to motivate high school students to increase physical activity and improve diet.

Triple A

The Triple A program is a proven initiative to improve the health and wellbeing of students with asthma and significantly reduce the likelihood of smoking.

Ongoing relationships with schools, health and education organisations are a highly valued part of our work.

Our programs empower high school students and create a positive school community centred around health, leadership and, goodwill.
