About This Service

The Maroondah SWAT program is a fun and challenging opportunity offered to Year 10 and VCAL students across Maroondah. Participants are nominated through schools and spend 1 day at a Summit, 3 days at a Retreat and will be supported within their schools to implement an action to increase the wellbeing in their schools. The program focuses on positive psychology and wellbeing with clear links to self confidence, community leadership and self awareness. The aim of SWAT is to assist and encourage young people to participate more confidently and effectively in their school and local community. SWAT is supported by the Victorian Government through the Engage! program.
