HEATHER YELLAND

COMMUNICATION

Heather Yelland is loved by thousands of young people. Why? Because she “gets us”!


She is the Founder and Director of the highly acclaimed Green SuperCamp™ Australia programme, offering personal leadership, academic acceleration, environmental awareness and social
contribution to children aged 10 to 18 years. Heather believes that all anybody really wants is to love and be loved, and to be known, loved, seen and “got” for who they truly are.


Heather believes that supporting young people to discover and express the truth of who they are and embrace the difference they were born to make, is at the core of us believing in ourselves,
feeling loved and making a meaningful difference in the world. Heather knows that all too often the activities of life can distract us from the essential task of personal reflection and growth, yet this is where true success is borne; the home of self-belief and personal leadership.


With formal training in Arts, Psychology, Family and Systems Theory, and Business, Heather has been a people specialist for over 30 years. Her ability to get to the heart of what drives and inspires people, especially young people, and what limits them and prevents them from realising their fullest potential, has been the foundation of her work in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, the USA and Asia. As She has impacted and changed the lives of over 80,000 across the world and is referred to as “second mum” by thousands of young people.

 

As step mother to 8 children, Heather also knows what it means to be present to children whilst in the trenches, juggling multiple demands and dealing with the reality of family, school, business and community commitments. Perhaps because of this, she has built her legacy through providing services that help develop young people who believe in themselves and become engaged and inspiring adults.
