- A sense of purpose that instils motivation and determination to forge own success.
- Improvement in mental and physical health – self-belief, self-esteem and confidence.
- A culture of social conscience and giving through citizenship, resources and enrichment.
- Improvement in personal character – resilience, initiative and tenacity.
- Improvement in employability – new leadership, understanding and development of behaviours employers need, teamwork, problem solving, public speaking, and research skills.
