Wow, this year has just flown; I can’t believe it’s halfway through 2017!!! The new Talking Realities young parent training has commenced and we have a fantastic group of young parents enrolled and ready to start, we cannot wait to see what the next 6months of training brings for them!

As for our school presentations, we have been extremely busy conducting 15 presentations with over 300 attendees, FANTASTIC work from the Talking Realities Peer Educators, the feedback is always great and we couldn’t do this without you all, your commitment to the program is amazing and the way you present is even better – keep up the amazing work!!

We have graduated 29 young parents in our program with 80% continuing onto further study!!!! With 7 successful University applications!!!!

Check out some of our graduate peer educator comments:

  • “Talking Realities young parent program is the most important thing I have done in my life, I’m back at school and I learnt so much about looking after my baby, I feel better about me”
  • “Honestly, without this program I would not be where I am today. Talking Realities gave me a sense of purpose and I would not be at University now without this program”
  • "The program helped bring about all the positive changes in my life. They supported me, helped me, trained me, and guided me and helped improve my self-esteem and motivated me into Uni.”
