Welcome to Project Booyah 

Project Booyah, which translates to an expression for ‘joy, excitement or triumph’, is a Queensland Police, Youth Mentoring Program that utilises adventure based learning, leadership skills, decision making/problem solving exercises, resilience training, policing strategies and family inclusive principles to help young people aged 14-17 years make better life choices!

Project Booyah Program

Project Booyah incorporates police mentoring through a resilience program called RESPECT, education, adventure-based learning principles, vocational scholarships and strategic partnerships that ultimately support post program employment and/or educational opportunities (Read more)

The RESPECT Program

The RESPECT program is underpinned by a strength-based approach, that supports existing strengths and abilities of the young person as opposed to focusing on, and staying with the problem or concern.  (Read more)

Adventure Based Learning

ABL involves participants engaging in a variety of adventurous activities that have a reasonably high level of “perceived risk” but very low “actual risk”, such as abseiling, high ropes obstacle courses and mountain biking. (Read more)

Graduation

At the end of the program, a graduation day and ceremony are held for participants involving all family members and significant others. Police officers and Youth Support Officers remain constant mentors throughout the program, assisting the young people. (Read more)

Post Program Follow Up (Framing the Future)
