You Can Do It! Education’s core purpose is the development of young people’s social and emotional capabilities, including the five foundations: confidence (academic, social), persistence, organisation, getting along, and emotional resilience. 

Central to the development of these five foundations is to instil, support and nourish in young people the 12 ‘Habits of the Mind’ 

For more than 20 years, ​in excess of 1,000,000 early childhood, primary and secondary students have participated in You Can Do It! Education programs in more than 5000 schools.
