OUR STORY BEGINS IN 2014
BURN BRIGHT EXISTS TO…
AT OUR FOUNDATION…
WHO ARE WE?
Burn Bright is a social enterprise, not-for-profit organisation, that was established in 2014. At Burn Bright we encourage, challenge and develop students through tailored experiential leadership, wellbeing programs and national camps. We are student leadership and wellbeing specialists who work with students from Year 5 to Year 12 in a collaborative, fun and inclusive team culture. This brings about positive behavioural change, a shift in mindset and personal wellbeing, allowing students to make informed choices and decisions.
We have a team based in Sydney and Melbourne who travel to all parts of Australia to work with young people and partner with schools on a daily basis.
The acquired leadership behaviours, wellbeing habits and character traits help build meaningful, healthy and positive long-lasting skills and friendships that will continue beyond the school years.
In short, Burn Bright provides the fuel and the spark that ignites the potential within every student, leading to enhanced self-efficacy and a heightened sense of personal wellbeing.
The scope for growth of our work is limitless and we want to invite you to be a part of our journey.

Student Leadership Programs
Our leadership programs educate students through the lens of servant leadership and that to lead others purposefully, they must first learn to lead themselves. Students leave our leadership programs understanding what it takes to become a servant leader, how to use their influence well and importantly, how to incorporate proven leadership qualities into their own daily lives.
Our wellbeing programs are specifically designed to enable young people to build a solid foundation of character and values to ignite their lives with the possibility of the future. These programs are a dynamic and engaging way to learn about oneself and the people around them. The acquired leadership behaviours, wellbeing habits and character traits help build meaningful, healthy and positive long-lasting skills and friendships that will continue beyond the school years.
Burn Bright delivers camps across Australia. Burn Bright’s prestigious National Leadership Camp is hosted every year in the July school holidays in Sydney. National Leadership Camp 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. Burn Bright also hosts the Perth College Leadership Camp for year 11 and 12 girls in Western Australia during the January school holidays.
WE LOVE OUR MUSIC
Our Burn Bright Leaders
Burn Bright Leaders lead by example. They have demonstrated the capacity, skill-sets and personal attributes to inspire their students to embrace the notion and actions required to become leaders themselves.
All Burn Bright programs have a minimum of two leaders irrespective of the size of the group, allowing them cater to the personalities and learning styles of all students. Every Burn Bright Leader is a strong communicator. When they talk to students our Leaders use real stories and life experiences that build credibility, rapport and a sense of a shared understanding.
