What We Do

We help girls take the first step to achieving big things - first by dreaming. We want to inspire the girls to discover their own individual fire so that they may create their own burning version
of AWESOME.


Our Impact

"There have been changes in every student. It opened their eyes to their potential, and their possibility of achieving success - something they do not hear very often. They are more self expressed, open, happy and confident in the dreams."

Teacher, Auckland Girls Grammar School

 

"This has been such a fun and inspirational day. Oh my gosh. SO MUCH FUN.
I have no words to describe how awesome today has been!!!”

Our Programme

Our programme is made up of four key elements, dream days, dream boards, the academy and scholarships. Each element is designed to inspire, encourage and support the girls to reach their goals, one step at a time.

 

DREAM DAYS

During Dream Days we host schools offsite to foster unrestricted thinking. Once there, our girls hear from successful men and women who have been in their shoes,  but whom dreamed big and have achieved great things.

Back in school, we have Dream Board sessions where our girls produce their Dream Boards and define their dreams, set their goals and make the intangible a reality.
 

 

THE ACADEMY

After completing the Dream Days a number of girls are chosen to join The Academy. Here they continue to nurture their dreams with a more intensive support programme that sees them through to the end of year 13. The Academy includes regular small group mentoring, support via social media and email, short term internships, participation in a year 12 physical challenge, a year 13 graduation camp and access to a number of scholarships.

"I believe that in order to achieve our goals or succeed we need to dream big. I believe in dreaming and I will follow on and take what the speakers have said today as inspiration for my future, as they said, dreams don’t work unless you do. ”

Our team

Our  team have all travelled our own journeys to success. Not all of us  at Elicit even had a dream when we were young, let alone realised we could create a path to make a dream come true. We wanted to change that thinking in the next generation of our girls, and  run a programme that dares girls to say.. hey.. I can create a dream for me.. I can create a different life.
