David, Nick and Ben are highly engaging and experienced professionals to lead you through an amazing trip. I got a lot more than I expected out of it. A bit of pain, a bit of honesty, a bit of courage and a whole lot of fun. I have already recommended the program to friends and colleagues as the self-learnings and skills I gained are a serious game changer!

Interesting and empowering session. Very doable timewise and worth that time to pick up some pragmatic tips as an individual and a team leader.

Nic and Dav have an authentic and challenging voice that they use to connect with young people. When they left, our students were inspired and motivated to tackle their senior years of schooling with confidence. Thanks for visiting Padua College. Please come back again.

The Resilience Builders Family Program was an amazing experience to take the time out with my teen, explore the beauty of Cradle Mountain and learn about our key strengths and how to manage resilience through practical experience. The guides and program facilitators helped us both mentally and physically and with my daughter we learned a great deal about ourselves as well as each other. Highly recommend this program.

An incredible experience with my teenage daughter in one of the most amazing environments Australia has to offer. David, Nick and the RB team delivered on their commitment to each of the families to achieve a physical and mental challenge through a shared goal and their expertise in safely guiding us up and down Cradle Mountain. The reward for all of was achieving the outcome with our children and each other. The trust that was formed then enabled lots of fun and open discussion with the group in all other activities throughout our stay. Highly recommended to all parents and children to take some time to be together, off the grid and allow the Resilience Builders to weave their magic

David and Nick were very impressive and provided a thoughtful and engaging resilience course for our group that provided them with a new skill set that the group can use in both their personal and professional lives.

The students selected to actively participated in the Resilience Builders program demonstrated a significant improvement in their visible high performance behaviours including but not limited to organisation, motivation, work ethic and their ability to adapt & cope; namely resilience. David, Nick & their team have been flexible, understanding, reliable & responsive moreover, they have been incredibly wonderful to work with and our school is sincerely appreciative of the working relationship we have forged with them. We will be continuing our schools engagement with their services into the future.

In one of our most challenging years to date the Resilience Builders program provided tools and strategies for my workforce to cope and thrive in the unfamiliar work environment post COVID. The real and tangible data through surveys, engagement and exercises showed significant uplift in all four pillars of resilience. Delivered in 1 hour workshops weekly, my team found the program engaging and relevant. David, Nick and Dan did a great job tailoring the program specific to the needs of group & most importantly the things they learnt were life skills that are relevant in both work & personal. I would recommend the Resilience Builders program to any staff at any time, and even more particularly in these challenging times. Massive thank you to David, Nick & Dan for all your support.

Help your students reduce stress and manage anxiety

You know better than anyone the challenges teenage students face.

Resilience training helps them cope and thrive in the face of these challenges. We offer curriculum-ready school resilience programs and training for your students, including workshops, school camps, and international trips.

Your students will learn:

  • Stress management
  • Health and wellbeing strategies

Want to find out more about how we can help? Arrange a free discovery session to see how we can tailor a program to suit your school.

Our programs equip your students with the resilience needed to weather life's challenges.

How we build resilient students

Resilience helps lessen the impacts of stress, anxiety, and depression and is an essential part of academic and social development. Our school resilience programs work because we ask something of your students. Here are our five ‘must-haves’ for building resilience.


They’ll commit some time and effort in the lead-up to your program. This improves the likelihood of success.


The success of a resilience building activity isn’t guaranteed. This helps your students learn stress management techniques and healthy ways to cope with anxiety.

Perceived risk

Whether it’s physical exertion, emotional vulnerability, or perceived social standing, students have to give something of themselves to prove they can rise to the occasion.

New environment

It’s worth repeating: resilience loves uncertainty. The outdoors has it in spades. Students can learn about resilience indoors. They build resilience outdoors.


No mobile phones, no laptops, no Wi-Fi. Your students will live in the moment.

Doesn’t that sound refreshing?

With an impeccable safety record, we teach students lasting resilience.

Free discovery session.

A discovery session with a world-class facilitator will explore the challenges your students face and figure out the best ways to overcome them as well as choose a location and set of activities that best suit your school. A session runs for about 30 minutes and can be done over the phone, via video conference, or face-to-face.

Complete the form and we’ll be in touch.
