Resilience Sessions, as a part of Volunteering Qld's Youth Communication and Resilience Project, aim to engage young people in discussions and activities which can help them prepare for natural disasters and be better informed, more connected and resilient members of their communities. These one-hour activities also provide an opportunity to improve teamwork skills, logical thinking, creative skills, leadership, communication and facilitation skills. In addition, session participants can stay involved with the initiative and make a difference by becoming Resilience Ambassadors.
Volunteering Qld has delivered 52 sessions in 21 high schools and community organisations to over 900 students across Queensland so far. The sessions are flexible and highly adaptable in terms of diverse participation and ways of delivery. This project has been funded by Queensland State and Commonwealth Governments.
