VITAL ProJeX offers life transformative programs using a unique and effective paradigm for working with young people and passing this on through training young workers, teachers, counsellors, coaches, mentors, anyone who works with youth and young adults. This paradigm focuses on integrating values through action-based learning

The VITAL Story

VITAL ProJeX began on a foundation of over 100 years of combined experience of working (and learning) to produce the best and most efficient outcomes for disadvantaged young people and their families.
Initially we ran programs ourselves with young people, and as we saw the results and the way lives and communities were being changed – we wanted to help others to also use this inspired paradigm. That’s when we began to train others. Something we learned early on is that the mentors and carers of youth don’t just need a another booklet or program to store on their bookshelves. No, they need to experience the VITAL paradigm themselves, to truly understand how it works and how to use it to unleash people’s potential in their own settings. Our training is based on what we teach – learning through action!


Our Mission

To provide leadership and alternatives of hope to vulnerable young people through preventative and reactive needs-based programs. We do this through quickly creating emotionally-safe environments of respectful, supportive relationships and by providing developmental opportunities to grow as a whole person (mentally, socially, physically, emotionally and spiritually), in order that young people can enjoy their lives and be productive members of their communities.

Our Objectives

How we achieve our mission.

  1. To pass on 40 years of pioneering programs that work by training responsible adults in the facilitation and mentoring of young people.
  2. Provide highly engaging programs that mentor vulnerable young people and young leaders in the positive development of values and life skills such as: self confidence/worth, respect for others, taking responsibility, emotional regulation and over 50 other personal character strengths/values.
  3. Through reflected experiences and Virtual Reality scenarios to overcome fear and insecurities by developing courage and resilience. 
  4. To foster a healthy peer group culture through positive small group interactions and challenging activities.
  5. Facilitating opportunities for young people to develop healthy, positive relationships with mature caring adult models (mentors).
  6. Long term concern for young people.
  7. Offer fun, positive entertainment and appropriate responsibility.
  8. To assist young people in becoming valuable employees.
  9. By using the latest technology and evidenced based principles to achieve the most efficient outcomes.  
  10. Outcomes above are achieved using adventure-based therapy principles.Young_people

  • VITAL Training Programs – Have a quantum leap in your group work skills for more effective outcomes with – Accelerated Leadership, the Disadvantaged, the Anti-social or the ‘At Risk’ young and not-so-young. These are multi-day residential and non-residential training programs for adults who work with young people and groups. Learn the extremely successful paradigm of  ‘Beyond Rules, Beyond Lectures and Beyond Fear‘. These are life attitude changing experiences with 100% positive feedback.
  • Professional Development Courses – These are flexibly structured to suit your needs. Running from just 90 minute workshops up to 2-day courses these action-based sessions have a very high integration factor.
