The content within To Future Me has been specifically designed for the Year 8 level when young people are aged 13 to 14 years old. This age is a critical time of exploring identity and forming relationships. It is an evidence-based approach as providing vital information and strategies at this age has been shown to have a lasting impact. As such the program is not recommended outside of this age.
To Future Me was designed as an independent program for year 8 students. However, along the way teachers/educators will be provided with confidence building resources to be able to respond to the topics connected to the program and additionally have to set up a login for your organisation/school, there is no further involvement required. Although as a value add, we would highly recommend teachers/wellbeing leaders/staff access the content for helpful insights that are drawn from Kids First Australia’s extensive expertise.
