WHEN: 3 - 9 December 2018
The power of sail training to influence positive change and development in young adults is well researched and documented. The unfamiliar social and physical environment on board Leeuwin provides an ideal opportunity to develop new patterns of thinking and behaviour. The combination of risk and fear will give you goose bumps!
Whether just starting out in the workforce, starting university, changing careers or returning to work post-study, we know young adults benefit from the Leeuwin voyage experience.
The world is a rapidly changing place and some of our young adults may secure jobs in the future that don’t even exist yet. Students today need to prepare for an uncertain future.
Leeuwin Ocean Adventure aims to enhance life skills for young adults so as they progress through their career they are confident to apply skills in collaboration, communication, leadership and problem-solving in the workplace.
With a new look at Australian Training Associations, Leeuwin Ocean Adventure invites nominations from these organisation to support and sponsor their young employees and apprentices. In 2018, it’s all about a brighter career path!
What the participant gains:
- Confidence, courage and self-awareness
- Qualities of a good team leader and participant

Career Challenge Committee
Following each Career Challenge, we invite a group of participants back to join our Career Challenge Committee (CCC). The committee was formed in 2017, and assists the Leeuwin team to promote the event – at university, TAFE, through social media and at local events around Perth. They offer suggestions, provide crucial feedback and meet several times throughout the year to assist in ensuring the Career Challenge is bigger and better each year!
