Ready to open your  eyes to the broader world and cultivate budding leadership skills?

We’re writing to you from Future Leaders Academy as we specialise in running week-long, all-inclusive student leadership courses across the South West Pacific Islands, for New Zealand, Australian and Pacifika youth.

With the travel bubble now open we are running our next programme in the beautiful Cook Islands in the October (Term 3) school holidays.

What makes this course a not-to-be-missed opportunity? Students will:

✔️ Deepen their leadership skills via practical application in team settings
✔️ Learn communication, collaboration, critical and strategic thinking skills
✔️ Grow their networks with fellow student leaders
✔️ Immerse themselves in Pasifika culture
✔️ Create cross-cultural connections
✔️ Expand their perspective at a pivotal point in their lives
✔️ Enjoy tropical Cook Island life with delicious authentic food, surreal scenery and friendly locals

The course is geared for Year 12 and 13 students who are already demonstrating their leadership skills. Prefects, peer support leaders and aspiring student leaders are encouraged to apply.

“Both Damien and Jess gained a great deal from their time away and came back with some fantastic feedback. I look forward to more information regarding the next opportunity for students from Otaki College.”
Andy Fraser – Principal, Otaki College
We’ve partnered with Tereora College in the Cook Islands to host this course which runs from 2-9 October 2021. We have a competitive application process with only 30 spaces available for NZ students, joined by 20 local Cook Island students.

If you have students who you believe could benefit from this opportunity, we urge you to share this message with your current prefects, house captains, aspiring student leaders and colleagues.

Students can apply for the Cook Islands Pacific Students Leadership Programme, or learn more about the course, by jumping onto our website or contacting us through the details below.

New horizons await!  We look forward to having your students onboard our journey.

Ko te pae tawhiti whāia kia tata, ko te pae tata whakamaua kia tīna


Seek out distant horizons, and cherish those you attain.
