youth opportunities

Youth Opportunities aims to increase wellbeing and resilience for our students and gives them a chance to be the best they can be.

They learn how to create successful habits for themselves that lead to increased levels of self-esteem and confidence, motivation towards school and other goals and learning effective communication skills to build and maintain successful relationships in their lives.

Whyalla High School has a proud partnership with Youth Opportunities, who offer a Personal Leadership Program for our Year 10 students to apply for.

The course runs one day a week for 10 weeks, in an adult learning environment offsite school grounds, and there is a graduation ceremony at the end of the course for family, school staff and supporters to celebrate graduate achievements.

All graduates can also receive 20 SACE points, have access to financial scholarships plus ongoing support and mentoring from Youth Opportunities until they leave school. For more information about the program, see or contact the Deputy Principal.
