How the program works...

The Tiny Foxes will offer the Life Skills Academy digital course to the entire Year 12 cohort at the school of your choice. Accessible through a personalised landing page featuring the sponsors branding, the course provides students with the flexibility to learn essential life skills at their own pace.

It aims to support parents and caregivers in preparing their young person to handle financial matters, avoid debt, access necessary support, and navigate the administrative responsibilities of adulthood.

Our program is priced to maximise value. Normally, individual access to the course is $299 each. However, we are providing digital access to the entire Year 12 cohort for a fixed price of $5,000 + GST, regardless of the number of students in the cohort. 

We KNOW what a difference it can make to navigate your finances well from the beginning and avoid some of the mistakes that will cost in the long run. Beyond that we care deeply about getting this info into the hands of young people so they can fully capitalise on their potential. If you feel the same way, we would love to work with you to make this happen in YOUR community.
