Training

The 5 Day VITAL Course is a real compromise to the holistic 7 day program but has been cut to 5 days by request of organisations that require a Monday – Friday style program.  How are they different?  READ MORE…

We currently offer two of each training camps over the course of the year. You can view the dates of this year’s training opportunities here.

Programs

This is a great question. The original VITAL school program was No Limits which was designed to be run with senior school students ages 15+. UnLimited has been specifically developed in recent years to be run with students aged 10-14.

The reason for developing separate programs is quite simple: developmentally, the two age groups are very different. For the younger age group (UnLimited) you will be dealing with young people who need concrete rather than abstract concepts, have shorter attention spans, need to be settled rather than energised, and who are still predominantly guided by social forces (peers, family, school, etc) for the formation of their values and behaviours. For the older age group (No Limits) you will be working with young people who are able to think in more abstract concepts and theories, have longer attention spans (hopefully), need to be energised rather than settled, and who are beginning to explore their own autonomy to decide their values, behaviours, world view and morality.

While we are working with different age groups, some things remain the same, such as the frameworks of the paradigm from which we work. Therefore, what is done in understanding group dynamics is the same; how it is done is different. Even a brief perusal of the two programs will give you an idea of how the programs have been carefully arranged to be developmentally appropriate in order that we can help the individuals and groups reach their brightest potential.

The feedback and obvious changes in both age groups as they complete these programs instil great hope that miracles still do happen.

Please have a look at the video reviews for No Limits and UnLimited, if you haven’t already, to see just how the different programs are impacting students.

In order to run a VITAL program, your school will need to have a trained facilitator to run the programs. Usually this is the school Chaplain, Social Justice teacher or Youth Worker. Your local facilitator will need to attend the UnLimited and No Limits training week.

Many of the facilitators who attend training must first raise funds or be sponsored to attend our training. If you would like to sponsor your local chaplain or youth worker to attend our training, please see our sponsor page.

Otherwise, talk to your local school about VITAL, show them our website and videos, and if you would like us to speak to your school about our programs, please get in touch with us.

The fact is, there is no specific “school’s programs list”. The only “list” of programs that Education Queensland has is the Qld Arts Council List of Touring Performance Groups. EQ cannot endorse any individual school programs on their website. It is up to each school administration to decide upon their own programs, which typically happens on recommendations and endorsements through school networks (Regional Principal Network and Strategy or Student Support Networks, Scripture Union Chaplaincy, etc).

To this end, we have collected a large number of endorsements and recommendations which we presented to the Brisbane Regional Education Department. They are very pleased with the outcomes of our programs and will endorse them verbally at every chance. If you would like to confirm that there is no list or ask any further questions, you may contact:

General

VITAL ProJeX is registered as a charity with the Australian Charities and Not-For-Profit Commission (ACNC) and eligible tax-deductible donations have Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status with the Australian Tax Office.

This means that in order for us to continue to work towards our mission, we need to be financially sustainable. If we provided our services and products for free then VITAL would no longer be able to operate.

Also, we pride ourselves on being the leading values-education training provider. We therefore believe the training and resources we provide are of the highest quality – and are potentially worth even more than the price we ask. Currently we try to provide our services and products at the lowest price possible, to cover our costs and ensure we are sustainable. And of course, to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to get involved.
