Hi Honour,

Through out stage one you will have access to Spirit of Adventure and also high performance workshops. Your involvement through stage one and your growth through out the programme will be noted. Our selection panel will choose 10 students who are showing growth and involvement in the programme.

Hi Luke,

After stage 3 of the programme you would have the opportunity to apply to Hyundai NZ for a scholarship grant to pursue your passion. That might be for Uni costs, to join the best dance school or to set up an art studio.

Hey Pinnacle, 

Just wondering how many scholarships you give out a year? 

Thanks

What exactly do you mean on the website where it says a personalised mentor to help you in your specialist area. What do you mean by specialist area? Is that what we are interested in or dependent on the program?

Thanks :)

Hi Hunter,
Our first year students attend 10 days on Spirit of Adventure and our second year students attend 21 days on Outward Bound. Our students come back saying the experience was the Pinnacle of their life so far! If you are passionate about one or many different things and need help deciding, this course could be for you. Apply online.

Hi Pinnacle, 

Why do you cull your scholarship recipients down through the phases? I am trying to figure out the logic behind this. 

Do those that are culled still receive support, or are they left to their down devices once they've been dropped?

Hi Ben,
The Pinnacle Programme is a 3 year mentor programme for passionate teens between 15 - 18 y/o.
Stage one - we fund our students on Spirit of Adventure
Stage two - We fund our students on Outward Bound
Stage three - We set our students up with a one on one mentor to help develop you and connect you into the work force.
Through out the programme we host workshops on presentations skills, confidence building and all round life skills.
Apply online if this programme sounds right for you!
Cheers Lucy

Hi Sam,
As the Programme progresses there are students who are more passionate to develop than others. Some drop away from their own accord but we have students who have been in stage one for 2 years who we continue to support through workshops and personal development. If you miss out the first time you apply for one of the stages you will still be considered at the next intake.

Hi William,
We understand that University is not the pathway for everyone. We help our Pinnacle students find the connections they need to join the workforce and develop in the area they are passionate about.
