Treasure

Supporting Teens to live a brave life

Are more and more students feeling overwhelmed, anxious and disconnected at your school?

In a world where

  • comparison seems to be programmed into the DNA of young people
  • bullying is prevalent throughout the community and
  • social isolation is filtering throughout the community

the number of young people becoming disengaged is on the rise.

The mental health statistics are real, and the experiences that young people are facing are evolving.

It’s time for a new model of support to ensure all young people have the opportunity to thrive.

Welcome to Treasure Teens

An innovative project teaching young people how to develop a comparison-free mindset so they can live bravely.

This project is here to strengthen courage, build resilience and support young people to confidently create change and navigate their direction in life.

Treasure goes beyond awareness and information sharing. It is a unique program that encourages application and engagement so every student can create a healthy and safe life.


Treasure elevates your student engagement while focusing on Student Care and Wellbeing.
 

The workshops compliment the Health Studies Curriculum and your established Student Care Team.
 

They highlight positive individual, social and community relationships, while maximising student learning, empowerment and happiness.
 

Sessions are flexible and can match your timetable to ensure minimal disruption to students and staff.

Designed specifically for young people aged 12-18.

Delivered through a workshop-based model to schools throughout Western Australia.

Strengthening student autonomy, confidence, resilience and happiness.

With 7 workshops to choose from, there is something for every school, year group and student.

Treasure is outcome focused and has been linked with the SCSA Curriculum for Health Studies.

THE TREASURE APPROACH

STRENGTH-BASED

Every workshop is delivered following a strength-based model. Treasure is focused on student empowerment and believes that every student is resourceful and has the capacity to live well. Delivering the workshops using this approach increases student autonomy and resilience. There is a strong focus on building individual self-awareness and self-regulation skills to increase positive emotions and experiences.

EARLY RESPONSE

Treasure provides a foundation of skills and knowledge that can be applied throughout the student’s school life and in their life after school. Sharing these tools now increases the possibilities for each student to live well and it also helps each student become aware of when they need to ask for external help to support them to thrive.

PERSONAL

Each workshop is tailored to ensure the target group receives relatable and appropriate support. Treasure support is flexible and aims to work in context with the students – we will also ensure that relevant youth friendly language is applied. With groups that have less than 30 students, there is an interactive activity that encourages student discussion and student-to-student support will be facilitated to increase positive peer relationships.

INTERACTIVE

We believe that effective student engagement goes hand-in-hand with interactive content and activities. Each Treasure workshop is full of relevant information and is delivered in a variety of methods including focus groups, activities, discussion and games. We want the students to walk away feeling motivated, inspired and energised. We also encourage positive interactions between the supervising staff and the student.

TOOLKIT

Treasure gives each student a platform of consistent support through the creation of a personalised toolkit. Every workshop has a strong focus on supporting students to start taking ownership of their life – how they connect and interact with themselves and others. Treasure incorporates youth-friendly strategies and practices that students can use to strengthen their confidence, autonomy, courage and self-belief.

IMPACT

Treasure follows a ‘wrap-around service’ support approach, influencing positive outcomes and long-term impact for each student. We can work alongside your student support team at school to align with the school’s values and care goals. The workshops have a multi-layer focus both internal (within the school) and external (outside of the school), providing each student with limitless possibilities to create positive change.

THE TREASURE WORKSHOPS

Student Capacity -> 30-100 students per workshop

Duration -> 60-90 minutes (flexible to suit the timetable)

Cost -> $299 AUD (based on a 60 minute workshop)

#1 Comparison 101

Comparison 101 talks about the impact of living with comparison, and highlights the benefits of creating a comparison-free mindset. Each student will learn how to create a comparison-free mindset following the simple and youth friendly steps.

  • This workshop focuses on unpacking comparison. The students will learn the what’s, when’s, how’s and why’s of comparison. 

    Comparison 101 will support students to learn about self-reflection, how to identify comparison and understand the harmful impact comparison is having on their life. Students will learn how to transform comparison so they can live and grow confidently. We also cover safe online presence, developing positive relationships and how to become a comparison warrior to support their peers.

    This workshop is highly engaging using group discussion and focus topics to create a sense of community throughout the student group. Students will leave feeling empowered and inspired to create positive change.

#2 Becoming Brave

Becoming Brave supports students to build an unbreakable relationship with themselves. This workshop gives students a deeper understanding of comparison, teaches the tools needed to live a brave life and highlights the power of peer support. 

  • The exposure teenagers experience in today’s world is immense – constantly flooded by social media platforms with images, videos and recordings of others. The impact on creating individual identity with this external influence has proven extremely challenging and displays a risk to the safe exploration and discovery every young person has the right to experience. This workshop targets the importance of creating a positive personal relationship and how to learn to safely explore and discover who they are bravely.

    The themes of comparison, confidence and self-belief are covered throughout this workshop. This workshop is interactive and encourages group discussion and reflective practices.

#3 Bounce Back

This workshop teaches young people how to overcome set backs and strengthen their resilience so they can learn and grow after they experience a challenging situation. Bounce Back shows students how to identify and understand the concept of self-talk. 

  • Knock backs don’t have to be long lasting and they don’t have to completely stilt student development and happiness. This workshop teaches the students how to recreate their internal dialogue to supercharge their resilience, optimism and approach to life. Bounce Back will support each student to harness the power of self-talk so they can let go of any setback and start maximising their potential to learn, grow and succeed.

    This workshop teaches young people how to identify and regulate their emotions and helps students create their own self-care kit to help them thrive. 

    Delivered on a foundation of empowerment, Bounce Back is a powerful workshop that will have your students engaged for the entire session.

Impact & Outcomes

Treasure works to compliment your Student Care Team and the Health Studies Curriculum.

We’ve matched the Treasure impact and outcomes to the SCSA Curriculum – check them out here.


How is Treasure different?

Treasure goes beyond awareness and information sharing. It is a unique program that encourages application and engagement so every student can create a healthy and safe life. Treasure has the flexibility to delve into the elements that influence a person’s mental health.

We believe that there are fantastic programs available to students, staff and schools that are already established in the community. Run by various organisations, these programs target a specific delivery of support which offers incredible awareness raising and support.

However, we have done our research and Treasure brings something new to the table.

Rather than focusing on mental health at a surface level or from a reactive state, we go deeper. Treasure highlights the core elements that make up a person’s mental health focusing on self-connection, community-connection, belief patterns, emotional regulation, comparison-awareness, identity, confidence and courage.

Treasure uses a unique approach to talk about positive mental wellness and teaches students practical and effective strategies that they can start utilising in their every day lives.

We go beyond the face-to-face workshops. Treasure can also work with your school to create a tailored program that is delivered throughout a school term, we are able to work with your staff and your parents.

Treasure is also online – there is a fantastic, youth-friendly Instagram account which provides a positive online social connection for the students. We share regular tip, tools and practical strategies to encourage young people to continue to live bravely after the face-to-face workshops.

Treasure also makes sure there is the opportunity for growth and development after we have been to your school. That’s why we share the ‘Tips & Tools’ guide with your Student Care Team. This is an incredible resource that has practical and effective strategies young people can use to live bravely. This is also a fantastic professional development addition.

Treasure Teens Sarah

Hi, I’m Sarah
Founder and Facilitator of Treasure Teens

I’ve been professionally supporting young people in our community for almost a decade. My professional learning and experiences have been pivotal in the creation of this project. The harmful impact comparison is having on young people’s growth and development is prominent. Young people’s ability to live well and develop positive emotions including happiness are limited when comparison is active. I created Treasure so young people can feel empowered and confident to live a brave life. This platform encourages creative expression, self-discovery and connection, all of which are vital to ensuring young people thrive.

Qualifications: I have a Bachelor Degree of Social Sciences, Major in Youth Work, a Diploma of Counselling and a Certificate in Health and Wellness Coaching. I received a finalist nomination in the Youth Work WA awards last year and I also have a National Police Certificate and a current Working with Children Check.
