The Resilience Project

The North Queensland Toyota Cowboys have partnered with The Resilience Project to bring their exciting and engaging programs to North Queensland.

The Resilience Project helps to build resilient, positive and mentally healthy primary and secondary school communities through its school-based program.

The Cowboys will support the delivery of the program to six schools in 2019, with the opportunity for additional participants to enter the program leading up to 2020.

Following highly engaging information sessions delivered by The Resilience Project founder, Hugh Van Cuylenburg, the Cowboys team, including former Cowboy Ray Thompson, will engage with participating schools.

Schools will gain a range of practical strategies and resources to help teachers, students and parents understand the importance of practicing gratitude, empathy and mindfulness.

If you are interested in participating, or would like more information, email community@cowboys.com.au.

Learn more about The Resilience Project

The Resilience Project delivers emotionally engaging programs to schools, elite and community sports clubs and businesses, providing practical, evidence-based, positive strategies to build resilience and happiness.

The Resilience Project have delivered programs to over 650 government, independent and private schools across the country and as well as working with many elite sporting teams including the Australian cricket, netball and soccer teams, NRL and AFL clubs.

Through a combination of presentations, wellbeing journals, school curriculum, teacher diaries and their App, The Resilience Project is based on a scientific approach to studying human thoughts, feelings, and behaviour with focus on:

  • Strengths instead of weakness
  • Building on the good in life, instead of focussing on the bad
  • Taking the lives of people experiencing reasonable mental health up to 'great'

The focus of the project is on acting in a preventative space, as well as providing intervention for those struggling.
