Rise Above Program


Rise Above is a fresh, new education program being offered at our three Uniting Venues.

The Rise Above Program provides a positive educational program by delivering a wide range of dynamic activities based on teamwork, leadership, resilience and well-being for primary and secondary school students.

Through facilitator led activities, your group will be challenged in problem solving, critical thinking and collaboration in order to achieve goals and cultivate positive relationships.  Each program is tailored to suit your groups’ needs and can include both on site and off site activities, all with a focus on the desired curriculum outcomes you wish to achieve.
