Daniel and Jo have four teenage children and love seeing their purpose being revealed in their lives one step at a time. Passionate about values, purpose and goals they are continually encouraged to see what good choices are doing in their children’s lives.Danny & Jo

Jo was raised in  in New Zealand with her four sisters, one sister being 20 years her junior. Jo moved to Australia with her family in 1986. Dan has three siblings and grew up in the 80’s on a Youth Camp being involved with youth on the Mornington Peninsula, together they have  nearly 20 nieces and nephews.  Dan and Jo invented a toilet aiming target for boys called “Wee Target”. They run a small business helping boys of all ages, with the main focus being toilet training and special needs.  This experience has given both Dan and Jo insight into a variety of issues across the generations in a variety of areas.

It is out of concern and compassion for today’s youth that they have taken time to research and prepare this program “Path of Life”. A positive teaching tool that uses a facilitator to present to young people values, inspire dreams and purpose, show how to set goals, guide and connect them to positive role models in their lives.

As the tools and values are shared, it is anticipated that students will grow and develop in all of these areas, experience greater confidence in who they are, be an example to others and live their lives to their full potential.

There is no passion to be found in playing small, in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. Nelson Mandela
