Armed For Life

Armed For Life workshops are designed to educate and equip people to be able to deal with the problems that we face in life.

These workshops encourage and inspire people to make positive choices to build into their lives and their future.

Each topic uses a blend of stories, humour, activities and information to engage high school students, ensuring that the message is communicated effectively.

“Adam, Your passion and ability to engage students and help them to see that they are both important and resilient is inspiring and we at Lynwood value your work.”

Hayatti Miller (Head of Year 10, Lynwood SHS)

“Adam Przytula’s presentation on bullying is outstanding. From start to finish our students were fixated by his every word, as he reflected on his own bullying experiences and that of many others. He delivers all the key messages about bullying in a clear and engaging way. Adam’s presentation demands that all students reflect on their own behaviour and challenges them to become part of the solution to bullying rather than part of the problem. His presentation will make a difference to the students at your school and their attitude towards bullying.  A ‘must see’ presentation!”

Paul Cooke (Head of Year 8 and 9, Melville Senior High School, 2011)

“Adam is an amazing young man who is so passionate and driven about the holistic well-being and happiness of youth. His programs and team reflect that.”

Paula Bacchiella (Head of Pastoral Care, Aquinas College)

“Thanks Adam and your team of workers. Your professional, caring and targeted approach to a whole range of ‘prickly’ subjects is well appreciated.”

Mark Pettit (Head of Middle School, Kalamunda SHS)

“I just wanted to say thank you (to Mark as well) for the sessions yesterday. They were just what our kids needed at this time of the year – enough lightheartedness to help them relax but with a strong message to follow. I know it has made a good impact on all of them.”

Bronwyn Twining (John Wollaston Anglican School, 2014)

“I just wanted to say a massive thank you for coming to John Wollaston today with the Armed Artist session. I can honestly say I have never felt more empowered coming out of the chapel than I did today. I really admire how you’ve created such an amazing experience for me and all the other teenagers Armed For Life speaks to. I just really appreciate what you do for people and can’t thank you enough for today.”

Tabreisha (Yr 11, John Wollaston Anglican School)

“Brilliant job Adam. I just wanted to thank you personally for everything you did today at Lumen. I speak for all the year 9 girls of 2014 when I say we really enjoyed today. It was much appreciated that you and Jess came in to teach us. We will remember this for the rest of our lives and hopefully it will become of great use in the future.”

Skye (Yr9, Lumen Christi College)

“Today Adam, came to my school and talked to my whole ( year 11 ) group. He actually changed a lot of attitudes in quite a few of my fellow class mates. His speeches are honestly one of the most hopeful things I have heard in my life. Adam, you are amazing keep up the great work you are doing.”

Jessica (Yr11, Como Secondary College)

I’d just like to say thank you so, so, so much for coming to Newman yesterday and sharing your experience with us and giving the best advice that I’ve ever heard. You’ve really helped me, and though things are still tough right now, your presentations really inspired me a lot. Thank you!”

Gracia (Yr 10, Newman College)

Thank you Adam for your inspiring talks to my Small Business Management class over the past three years. The students have benefited tremendously hearing from a successful entrepreneur that has built a business with a heart, driven by the need to make a real difference. I wish you the only the very best.
