Creating Chances provides internationally and nationally renowned best practice, evidence-based programs promoting positive youth development through sport.
Our programs are designed to actively engage young people through sessions in the classroom and on the field, with a focus on delivering the skills required to navigate life effectively and contribute to their communities as agents of positive social change.
Using sports to explore personal development, community building, social change and post-school pathways, our groundbreaking pathway allows children and young people to explore core skills in a fun and safe environment, and equips them with the tools required to achieve their goals in life.
Each Creating Chances program fits into a pathway of learning and experience to encourage ongoing development throughout school.
Creating Chances also offers community-based programs and experiences for all ages to develop leadership and social skills, provide opportunities to participate in sport and community and introduce children to Creating Chances, including:
