The Growth Program

A one-year program that helped set participants up for long-term success

The Growth Program

The Growth Program was an innovative personal and professional development program that brought together 10 charity leaders and 10 business leaders for each intake. The charity and business leaders were paired, and together they participated in eight group learning sessions over a 12-month period.

The Program aimed to deliver knowledge and experiences that enabled participants to have a greater positive impact on society. Participants talk of the personal growth and fulfillment they experienced from participating in the program.

The one year program helped set the charities up for life.

Charity Leaders

The eight group-learning sessions were designed to help charity leaders drive efficiencies and effectiveness within their charity. The wide range of topics included things such as Building Networks, Creating Shared Experiences, Governance and Storytelling. The program was delivered at no cost to the charity leaders.

Business Leaders

Business leaders attended the eight group-sessions with their charity leader, sharing ideas and knowledge throughout the course. Whilst benefiting the charity, this also provided a leadership development opportunity for the business leader who was challenged to develop their  influencing skills and take what they learnt back to their organisation.

The Growth Project

The Growth Project is a non-profit organisation that supported small, successful charities to maximise their impact on the world.

We delivered this through an innovative personal development program that brought together charity and business leaders in an environment of shared learning. Throughout the 12-month course, participants shared knowledge and experiences, learnt how to run more effective and efficient organisations and developed their leadership skills.

The Growth Project is an ACNC registered charity.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.


By helping those who help, we have created connections and ripples of impact that will endure well beyond The Growth Project.
