Becoming You

Help pilot the Becoming You experience, presented by VU RISE Summer Gap Project

Victoria University’s AVID Australia and the Hellenic Museum have been working alongside a team of youth collaborators to co-design the Becoming You program. Becoming You has been created as a learning and connection experience for young people who are entering their post-secondary life and find themselves questioning ‘what comes next’.

Overview

We’re welcoming expressions of interest from young people aged 17 – 20 years old to take part in, and help evaluate, the pilot of this program!

The developed experience will see participants taking part in 5 x 3-hour sessions over the course of 7 Weeks. Participants will be supported through a personal inquiry process to consider what they want to achieve over the coming years and plan out their next steps.

By the end of the experience, participants will have a better understanding of the complexity inherent in any choice and be empowered to:

  • Explore their motivations in life.
  • Confidently talk about personal decisions.
  • Seek out and discover information about work, study, and life options.
  • Imagine and plan for their desired future.

Following the completion of the formal experience, participants will be invited to take part in an evaluation and redesign session (2.5 hours) where they will have the opportunity to provide feedback and reshape the experience for future young people!

All participants will be provided a $250 gift card at the conclusion of the evaluation session to acknowledge their time and effort taking part in this pilot program.

There are only 20 places available, so submit your expression of interest as soon as possible!

Program Dates and Location

All sessions will be held at the Hellenic Museum, 280 William Street, Melbourne. Interested participants must commit to attending all sessions to be eligible to take part in the Becoming You pilot.
