TO TRANSFORM YOUNG PEOPLE'S LIVES THROUGH EVIDENCE-BASED REMOTE, OUTBACK INTERVENTION PROGRAMS.
Creating opportunities for young people facing challenges through adventure therapy programs that provide demanding experiences, personal development and pathways to wellbeing and life success.
OPERATION FLINDERS EXISTS TO BE THE LEADING PROVIDER OF QUALITY REMOTE OUTBACK ADVENTURE PROGRAMS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE.
Young people with challenging backgrounds are provided with a psychological circuit breaker intended to increase resilience in order to tackle the challenges of life. The program is especially designed for those from environments with family dysfunction, drug abuse, and physical abuse to improve self-confidence and self-esteem, ability to work in teams, and ability to accept responsibility.
Operation Flinders participants demonstrated significantly improved self-esteem, attitudes towards criminal behaviour, and classroom behaviour.
