The Max Potential Program

Using an innovative program design, Max Potential takes high school students ('young adults') and volunteers ('community coaches') on a transformative journey that changes their life and moves them towards their own goals.

Professional coach training and three sessions with a professional coach for volunteer community members to upskill them in coaching techniques. This equips each community coach to effectively support their young adult towards achieving their goals AND gives them skills to use in their professional and personal lives.

Three half day interactive workshops (mix of in person and online) throughout the program create a sense of group identity and community within a fun and safe environment, providing valuable personal leadership development. These workshops build momentum and become important check points: an opportunity to celebrate ‘wins’ along the way!

Individual Coaching

Each young adult is carefully ‘matched’ with a community coach for the Max Potential journey. Each pair meets for at least eight one-on-one coaching sessions over the 22 weeks, personalised to meet each young adult where they are at, to change their attitudes and thinking to help them move towards the goal/s of their choosing.


Each community coach also has three individual coaching sessions with a professional coach to achieve their own coaching goal and be supported throughout the program.


Coaching is an active learning conversation that accelerates people’s ability to lead themselves and others effectively. It’s different to mentoring in that the coach doesn’t tell the coachee what to do, but instead asks great questions, challenges them to change their thinking and develop good habits, plus holds them accountable to go after their goals.

Community Service Pitch

Max Potential unleashes a young adult’s inner potential and confidence and provides opportunities to express this through action learning. Each young adult delivers a Community Service Pitch that takes an entrepreneurial approach to meeting needs in their local community.
