Background

There is growing evidence to suggest that today’s children are becoming less optimistic about their future, and that problems in adulthood are deeply connected to experiences in childhood.

Be Awesome believes that each child is born as a complete and unique being with vast potential, but that the current generation is experiencing an overwhelming amount of external information and influence that can limit and conceal this core identity and potential.

We have a dream to empower a generation of children to embody the awareness of their inner power, through a transformational festival program called the Be Awesome Festival.

We are also aware of the immense external pressure placed on teenagers at the end of high school to make important career and life decisions at a time when they are only beginning to discover their true identity. The Be Awesome Festival aims to support the personal development of young people in the post-high school phase by providing opportunities to mentor, support and act as a role-model for the 8-10 year old festival participants.

We are currently creating the first pilot for the festival to take place in Brisbane on Saturday 23 May 2015. If you share our vision for a generation of empowered young people we invite you to nominate as a youth facilitator for the Be Awesome Festival pilot!

This is an opportunity for you to be a part of the creative process for this event, to develop powerful leadership skills in a fun and dynamic team environment and to make a positive impact on the lives of a group of young people.

Please read the following information carefully and complete the application form below. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact us at info@beawesome.org.au.

The Be Awesome Festival Pilot

The Be Awesome Festival is a day of full-on energy, excitement and play where children explore a network of physical challenges. Challenges are designed in a way to allow each child to experience a powerful life lesson that they can embody through physical experience for the rest of their life.

The Be Awesome Festival pilot is a scaled version of the ultimate festival model and will feature three challenges based on responses from over 100 people in Brisbane to the following question:

If you could give an 8-10 year old the gift of one powerful life lesson that would support them for the rest of their life, what would it be?

The festival pilot will feature challenges that teach the following three lessons identified from our poll responses:

  • How to embrace failure to become more resilient
  • How to love and validate yourself without needing to please others
  • How to trust your gut instinct

As a youth facilitator, you will be required to attend three weekly meet ups (5/05, 12/05& 19/05) as well as participating on the day of the festival on Saturday 23 May 2015, from 8am-4pm.
