Workshops encouraging young people to say Yes I Can Achieve!

International performance teacher and coach, Paul Parker, will be in Stawell this month to help young people find their voice.

International performance teacher and coach, Paul Parker, will visit Stawell later this month to present a series of free workshops aimed at boosting the confidence of young people. 

The Yes I Can workshops are open to anyone between the ages of 12 and 17 and will be held at Stawell Neighborhood House from 10am until 3pm on Sunday 22 September, Sunday 29 September and Sunday 6 October. 

It will be the second time Central Grampians Local Learning and Employment Network (CGLLEN) has secured the services of Mr Parker to help local youth develop important life skills. 

“Paul ran a series of workshops for us in Ararat earlier this year and the feedback we had from the young participants was incredible. They came such a long way with their confidence and presentation skills in such a short time and continue to use the strategies Paul taught them in their day-to-day life,” CGLLEN Executive Officer, Jessica Paterson, said. 

Mr Parker said the Stawell sessions would focus on building self-confidence, presentation skills and personal development. 

“These workshops are about helping young people discover their voice and present their image with confidence in public. We will focus on verbal and non-verbal communication in a fun, educational, non-threatening way that guarantees improved results,” he said. 

“Participants will develop skills they never thought they had, which will make it easier for them to apply for jobs and succeed at school.” 

A free lunch will be provided at all three workshops. For more information, or to register, please email or phone the CGLLEN offices on 5352 3266.
