NEW!one hour workshops


our in-school programs

Enlighten Education’s programs help teenage girls decode the mixed messages they receive and help them develop self-esteem and confidence. Our programs are designed to be delivered in schools and are targeted at girls aged 12–18.


Thank you so much to Nikki for a truly meaningful and engaging presentation. She brought a whole new level of connectedness to the year 11 group. For the girls to have the opportunity to think about themselves as individuals and as part of a group of young women and the power they have to work together rather than in competition with one another was thought-provoking and hopefully action-inspiring. Thank you again for the important messages you brought to the senior girls of St Catherine’s.

We were thrilled with the way our girls reacted to the Enlighten seminar. They were raving about it for days afterwards. They felt very positive and empowered after the seminar. Thank you very much.

Thank you so much for your amazing workshops on Thursday. I've read the feedback, and it just supports what the girls had already told me on Friday. They absolutely loved it, and so did I. I think thre are so many powerful messages that they get out of it and you present it in just the right way which really gets through to them. I hope to see you back here again soon!

Powerful and relevant workshops that inspired and enriched our young women’s lives. Highly recommend to all schools who value building strong relationships and self-esteem in their girls.

In contrast to the many teen education programs which patronise or police teen girls, Enlighten Education's programs are strikingly different in that they seek to both recognise and further enhance the strengths of young women. By equipping them with practical skills delivered through a framework of empathy, care, compassion and joy Enlighten provides girls with an event that really resonates with them. This program shows that when you treat young people with dignity and respect by acknowledging the competencies and experiences they bring to discussions, truly great things can be achieved.

Was a fabulous day, the girls learnt so much throughout the day, were engaged at all times, responded beautifully to the discussion and activities and they felt empowered and happy after the day.
Definitely worthwhile and the topics covered were spot on for our girls, Fran, you were inspiring and motivating for the girls and a wonderful role model, which showed you can be a business woman and a mother as well as be feminine and be confident in who you are.
Was wonderful to see the girls get so much out of your stories and how to respond to certain situations. It was just what the girls needed.

You were fantastic and really engaged with our students. The material was presented in an honest and heartfelt manner. St Margaret's would love to have you present the workshops again in the future. It was a terrific way to end the term. Thank you.

St Margaret's School, Berwick VIC

It was great timing as the girls put what they learnt into practice the very next day when they went to camp. In many
cases the things they struggled with at camp involved communication issues and how to deal with conflict. I often just
held up my wrist band and said something along the lines of "what is the best way to deal with this situation?"

Thank you for helping our Year 9 girls to develop vital skills for not just for their school lives, but also far beyond that.

I feel empowered, knowledgable, informed, motivated and inspired by the Butterfly Effect program... Well done Danni- you are the most engaging and eloquent speaker I have had the pleasure to experience! My little sister was in your workshop day 2 and she felt exactly the same way about it! Go the amazon Princess- you're just gorgeous!

Dannielle Miller is a dynamic, inspiring and empathetic presenter who our students relate well to. Danni’s exceptional ability to convey important messages on healthy body image, personal safety, managing stress and resolving conflict with friends is validated by the positive testimonials by our students. We continue using the Enlighten Education Program because our students are educated in a fun way that helps them to remember the concepts presented throughout the day.

Just wanted to pass on to your company what a wonderful afternoon our Year 7-9 girls have just experienced. Your presenter Nikki was just terrific and she had the girls eating out of her hands! The content was spot on and the girls certainly left on a real high. It was a pleasure reading the feedback sheets and we look forward to working with
your company again

Enlighten provided the most successful presentation relating to Pastoral Care in our school in 2010. Dannielle's understanding of the issues that influence self esteem and behaviour in teenage girls is evident. Even more importantly, many of our girls have commented on the way that Dannielle's message has begun to influence their everyday attitude towards body image and the objectification of women in the media. St Clare's will certainly integrate 'The Butterfly Effect' into our Pastoral Care program in the future.
