YANA 2020

A space for you to learn from the best to be the best in your boarding world. Doors open 2020 in your pivotal moment, but are you ready to take the first step?

Why has boarding YANA been created?

Behind closed doors is your personal world that is affected daily by your lifestyle choice working in boarding.

At these times, you could feel lonely or lost when things are changing and you do feel that you have someone to talk to independent of your boarding world. On the one hand, you know that you need to reach out for support, but on the other you do not want to be the focus of school gossip or be part of the school politics that is affecting all areas your life.

Boarding YANA is an answer to this call to support boarding practitioners move forward in a space away from the house. Yana embraces the pivotal moments where boarding and life meet to provide a space for you, online or in person, when you have the time to focus on yourself rather than the whole boarding community you are leading.

YANA is a private, safe space and supportive community where you can post questions, share challenges, support each other, celebrate wins and gain insight from other members. You’ll learn from each others’ experiences and realise that you are not alone, no matter what you are going through in your boarding world.

There is a huge value to having the support  and encouragement of others who are facing similar challenges and opportunities, and who are equally interested in advancing their careers and improving their lives as you are. Discover insights from other boarding practitioners who may have taken the steps you need to or are ready to listen and support you moving forward.

Boarding Yana

Why use your ‘pivotal’ boarding moments?

When the boarders go home and the time is your own. This is your time to reflect, act and make a change when you are well rested and have some time to invest in yourself.

You just have to venture out, capture the moment and change one thing. These “lucky breaks” –  are the ones that help you move forward.
