THE ALL IN ONE 3-MONTH PROGRAM DESIGNED TO SET YOU UP FOR LIFE. THROUGH GUIDANCE, EDUCATION AND CONNECTIONS THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME.

The ultimate compliment to any young person working or studying.

Why are young people so disconnected?

Relationships in your early 20’s is one of the most important things in life.

Having met hundreds of people who claim to have no decent friends we decided to create a program that focused on building quality friendships

The Problem

Young people are more disconnected than ever. Making friends as an adult is hard. How do you meet people who are like minded and share similar beliefs as you?

University used to be a place where people would move out, become independent, socialise, make friends all while studying. But now thanks to online learning very few people are creating these friendships.

If all you did in your 20’s was build quality relationships, you’re a head of the game” and this has never been more difficult.

You either know what you’re here for, or you signed up because why not. But at the end of it, you’ll be surprised at how amazing it was. And trust me, my good word is worth gold. I don’t throw away suggestions of good experiences and references like it’s nothing; I only say things are good if they truly are. And this program is one of those truly golden good things.

– Lily Wang

5/5

 I feel like I’ve taken away so much more than I thought I would have when I signed up months ago. I feel like I’ve grown as a person and learnt so many things I wouldn’t have bothered learning previously. It made me curious again. I’ve also gained an incredible community of people and that’s probably one of the best things.
