Burn Bright focuses on the way we engage and communicate with young people. We believe that through experiential programs that deliver messages in a multi-modal fashion, the opportunity to get young people thinking about their lives is unique and limitless.
We have 5 key points of engagement:
Burn Bright is a social enterprise, not-for-profit organisation, that works solely to take young people from surviving to thriving. We actively partner with schools to deliver highly dynamic and engaging programmes, that excite young people and help them to build solid foundations from which they can flourish.
We have a team based in Sydney and Melbourne who travel to all parts of Australia to work with awesome young people on a daily basis.
On a national scale, we bring together our team and volunteers to run leadership and wellbeing programmes in schools. We also facilitate leadership and wellbeing camps that bring together young people from around the country.
What is possible really excites us is the relationships we have and continue to build with schools, teachers and parents to partner with them as we collectively impact the next generation of young people.
The scope for growth of our work is limitless and as we evolve we hope to continue to meet the needs of young people across Australia.
Burn Bright runs a range of leadership and wellbeing programmes that are specifically tailored to meet the needs of the schools we partner with. These programmes are run with primary and high schools from year 5 to year 12. Our programmes are active and experiential which leads to a dynamic engage throughout the day.
The National Leadership Camp (NLC) is hosted every year in the July school holidays in Sydney. In 2018 it will be the 14th time NLC has been run. NLC brings together 120 high school students from year 10 to 12 over 4 days to explore who they are as leaders and to develop and grow their capacity to serve others and their local communities in a fun and engaging way.
A big part of what Burn Bright does is helps other organisations to deliver their messages and engage young people in their programmes. Since our inception we have delivered a series of mental health forums on behalf of a range of community groups. We have also partnered with universities to deliver their outreach and equity and diversity programs. The custom and tailored nature of our programs means we can deliver a high quality programme for any organisation.
Burn Bright is a Not For Profit which ensures our organisation stays focused on the young people we serve. Whilst we are a Not For Profit we consider ourselves ‘for purpose’ meaning that it’s important Burn Bright runs an impactful social enterprise style organisation to continue to serve young people well into the future.
