PRIMARY PREVENTION PROGRAM
THE HERO WITHIN
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Hero within is based on ‘The Hero’s Journey’, originally conceived by Joseph Campbell. The hero’s journey recognizes that within any life changing experience there are certain patterns, stages and archetypal characters. The Hero Within takes students on a journey to recognise the discover the superhero within them.
The Hero within encourages sharing students unique stories and perspectives, as a platform of self-awareness and cultivating deeper intsight. We believe that with self-awareness, and a langauge that can be used to articulate themselves; students are less likely to struggle with mental health challenges silently as they progress into their adolsence and adult lives.
Every young person will understand their true potential, break through limited conditioning
and belief systems to pursue their dreams and develop an individual purpose in life.
To create a generation of empowered self-aware individuals that question status quo and
become curious towards social conditioning and understand their voices paves and shapes the future.
1. Facilitate a positive space to allow young people to develop their own purpose
2. Break through limited belief systems that prevent young people from thriving
