Blue EDGE - Educate, Develop, Grow, Empower

What IS Blue EDGE?

MOVE   

The EDGE Program uses physical training as a tool to help young people develop discipline, learn goal setting skills and grow through the achievement of personal goals.  Improved physical health promotes improved mental health.  Youths will learn  the  importance  of  team  work,  and  to motivate one another as well as themselves to achieve their goals.

WASH   

Participants will shower and change into a clean school  uniform  after  each exercise session.  Sounds simple, but personal hygiene is an important part of physical well being.

EAT      

A simple, healthy  and hearty breakfast will be provided before participants go to school.  It will be prepared while everyone works out, however everyone will help to clean up.

LEARN   

Motivational  guest speakers will be invited to address participants during breakfast and until school time. Topics can be modified to meet the particular needs of each community. Simple life skills will also be taught during this time. Participants will be taken to school alert, fed, motivated and ready for learning.


Exercise is an excellent way to improve your mood, decrease stress, increase energy, raise self confidence, look and feel better, and become more productive!

HOW will Blue EDGE work?

Research shows that positive outcomes can be delivered through a diversity  of youth  program types, delivery  locations and program  sizes. Australian  and international studies suggest a strong relationship between a young person’s engagement in youth programs,  a  reduced  involvement  in  risky behaviours and activities, and a development of knowledge, skills and competence in a diverse range of life skill areas.*


Our EDGE program is being developed to enable it’s delivery in broadly diverse locations.  Young people living in small, isolated communities in remote areas of Qld often have no access to quality  programs outside of school.  Areas of socioeconomic disadvantage will benefit from EDGE programs being run locally.


EDGE will be able to deliver positive outcomes for participants while adapting to the available resources in each community.  


EDGE  will  rely  on  the  support  of  local communities, both active and financial, to ensure the best outcomes for participants.


A supportive, community based environment for developing life skills and self confidence will be enhanced by mentoring from Police and Civilian volunteers.
