What is the Discovery Program?

Designed for school leavers, Discovery is a 2 year transition program which offers you education and training alongside daily activities in a structured group setting. Discovery enables you to explore and trial community based activity options while gaining practical life skills and training, equipping you with the tools you need for a more independent lifestyle.

Participants in the Discovery Program:

  • Learn about the many options available to be involved in your local community
  • Try out a range of volunteering, work experience, social & recreational roles in community organisations and local businesses
  • Enrol and complete a Certificate I in Transition Education (22301VIC) with Inclusion Training (TOID: 6404)
  • Become informed about topics such as self-advocacy, rights and responsibilities
  • Gain practical skills for everyday living, such as using public transport, road safety, literacy and numeracy
  • Share experiences with others who have already benefitted from living life their way
  • Develop friendships and support for families by ensuring that a daily structure is in place
  • Gain additional support from trained and individually matched volunteer mentors


Participants work towards completing the course over two years. At this time participants will also have a personalised schedule of activities and opportunities that connects them to work, volunteering or further education in their local community. Once Discovery finishes, we work with people to continue to build a meaningful life in the community.
