How did the Driven Young Program Start?
The Driven Young Program started back in 2021. Our founder Byron Dempsey noticed how lonely so many people in their twenties were including himself.
Having gone through a personal development journey since a very young age he noticed a lack of personal development and growth programs out there for young people.
Having tried “meetup.com”, Facebook groups, Bumble BFF and all the other platforms nothing seemed to work. Making friends seemed incredibly difficult and this was something many people agreed with.
During this time he was hosting the “Driven Young Podcast”, the number one educational podcast in Australia designed to teach people practical life skills we don’t learn in school.
So, during COVID he put together the first draft of the Driven Young Program. A program designed to built friendships, connect people and teach them the skills required to thrive in their 20’s.
After the first program was a huge success, it adapted and continued to grow and change.
Now the Driven Young Program is run in Sydney and Melbourne 8+ times a year and rapidly expanding to other cities across Australia.
We are all eager to find our community. We want to surround ourselves with people who share the same values and passions as us. The Driven Young Program strives to unite a community of driven young people regardless of gender, race, religion or sexual orientation
What is the Driven Young Program?
The Driven Young Program is a 1 month personal development program designed to help young people in their twenties build more confidence and find a community of likeminded people.
The program heavily focuses on personal development and will help you step out of your comfort zone so you can try new things, make new friends, and expand your horizons in a supportive community.
We’ll teach you how to build your social circle from scratch. It doesn’t matter if you’re on the shy-side or if it’s your first time moving away from home.
The Driven Young Program is here to give you the foundations of friendships that can last forever:
