2022 Youth Mentor Training Retreat


Transport yourself to Noosa…

You’ve done the training.  

Your business is up and running OR you’re ready to dive in and get this happening.

Let’s get together to plan, brainstorm, solve problems, celebrate + play!

In an inspiring, relaxing place of course. 🙂

See how much magic can happen in person. 

Join us for 4 days and 3 nights of masterminding, learning and connection with your fellow Shine From Within Youth Mentors in beautiful Noosa!

Leave the distractions behind and focus ON your business, rather than the day-to-day running or ‘side-hustle’ of it.  This will include mastermind sessions and workshops to help you gain clarity, focus and connect with like-minded souls who believe in you. All while immersing in nature.  #bliss #alsoyoucanclaimitontax

You’ll leave with an action plan for your project (whatever you want to focus on) and energised to keep moving forward once you get back home.

// 3 nights accommodation 

// All meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) – 100% plant-based

Friday 29 July – Monday 1 August 2022

This is outside of school holidays so hopefully will mean more availability and more affordable flights.  


Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas, Sunshine Coast QLD Australia

Approximately 30 mins north of Maroochydore Airport and 2 hrs north of Brisbane Airport. Both offer shuttle services to get you to the venue. Often flying into Brisbane means more flexibility and better prices. 


The location

Every Youth Mentor Retreat has a different vibe. Sometimes we’re in the mountains with acres of space. This retreat is a fancy beach-side retreat – tucked into the hillside just above Noosa’s Main Beach. We’ll be able to walk down the hill to the famous beach and busy strip, as well as be on the doorstep to the beautiful Noosa National Park.

Think: walks in the Noosa National Park before we start the day, giving stand up paddle boarding a go (if you want to) during a break, popping down for some yoga on the beach and maybe a sneaky stroll for gelato in the evenings. 

Accommodation in a beautiful, deluxe villa with our own space and views at Peppers Noosa Resort & Villas among fellow youth mentors. We’ve held our Mother-daughter retreats here before and it’s divine. 

Due to the size of the villa, places are limited and we have a few different room options for you to choose from. If we sell out of places, we’ll consider booking additional apartments in the resort (at a higher price) but all of our ‘retreating’ will happen in the deluxe villa.

The Deluxe Villa 

These luxurious sky-reaching Deluxe Villas will change more than your view with their discerning style, alluring ambience and spectacular panoramic views. Extended stays are absolutely no problem in these executive residences featuring guest bedrooms on the lower level and master bedroom on the top level (first in, best-dressed for rooms!). Living is easy on the middle level with exceptionally stylish dining and living areas that just seem to keep going out to the spacious balcony where Laguna Bay and the rainforest canopy of Noosa National Park stretch out majestically before your eyes.


  • Air-conditioning
  • Fully equipped kitchen + locally-sourced vegan catering 
  • Complimentary WiFi
  • Laundry with washer and dryer
  • Spacious living and dining areas
  • Bath and shower
  • Private balcony
  • Cable TV
  • Transfers to and from Hasting Street (it’s a stroll down the hill but it’s nice to know we can get picked up too!)


Dedicated sessions to up-skill, mastermind and work on your business.

The highlight is always the connections. A villa full of people who get what you’re trying to do and are cheering you on.


“I cannot speak highly enough of the impact the Youth Mentor retreats have provided. Both for my personal mindset and specific business growth.

The environment outside of the home office walls has allowed inspiration for new ideas to form and grow and old ideas to be fleshed out and troubleshot.

The speakers and workshops Amanda organises within the retreat have provided great opportunities for upskilling.

However amongst all the educational and business value I have received from attending the retreats, the most beneficial aspect, and the reason I return, is the opportunity to be surrounded with other mentors. It allows the new ideas to be discussed with others who “get it” and more importantly for purposeful action plans to be formed, whilst providing that like minded connection for endless laughs and shared inspiration!

The retreats truly are the perfect opportunity to work on the business instead of in it, with many fresh pair of enthusiastic eyes willing to help get it just right!”

Join Us!

Your booking includes: 

  • 3 nights accommodation, different room options below (until sold)
  • all meals at the villa (if you choose to go out for dinner one night, for example, this will be at your own expense) 
  • pre-retreat check-in and post-retreat check-in 

Your booking does not include: 

  • Flights or transportation/transfers 
  • Meals out or additional optional activities (for example, we’ll organise a professional photographer to come and take some branding headshots for anyone who wants this. The number of edited photos that you would like to purchase at the end will be an additional expense.)

We respect the rights of each individual to decide whether to get vaccinated against COVID-19. At this time, we do not require guests to be vaccinated to attend. All legal requirements will be enforced but nothing beyond what is legally mandated at the time of the retreat. At present, you do not need to be vaccinated to stay in a resort and, as of April 2022, unvaccinated people can go most places in Queensland (including restaurants and cafes). The retreat has been designed so that we can spend the majority of the time in our villa or outdoors anyway. Some optional extras, such as dinner in a restaurant, may not be available to folks who are unvaccinated.  If you are unsure of this or need further clarification, please email info@shinefromwithin.com.au. NOTE: It is likely that there will be unvaccinated people on this retreat; by booking in you agree that you are comfortable with this and take full responsibility for your own health and wellbeing. 

Refund Policy: 

Please read the terms and condition before proceeding. We have quite a strict cancellation policy so it’s a requirement that you organise travel insurance to ensure that if you or we need to cancel the retreat that you’re not left out of pocket. We also recommend flexible flights if you are flying in and strongly recommend holding off on booking flights until you receive an email from us confirming that we’re definitely going ahead (either in May 2022 or when we are fully booked – whichever comes first). 

By proceeding, you agree to these terms. Please note: GST will be added to the price for Australian residents

“I had been looking forward to the Shine From Within Youth Mentor Retreat for absolutely months, and I am so happy to say that it was even more nourishing, fun, connective and worthwhile than I had hoped.

Every detail had been taken care of, from the stunning setting, divine catering, materials, and treats, not to mention the incredible line up of guests we had visit throughout the weekend. I particularly loved connecting with my Youth Mentor community and forming lovely friendships that continue across the Tasman. If you have the opportunity to attend a SFW retreat, jump at it!

Amanda, Leah & their gorgeous community will ensure you have a completely delicious time and leave fully inspired to keep doing our super important work in the world!

Warning..we will have fun!

Each retreat we have different workshops and events depending on what we think is going to be most useful for the mentors who book in (that’s part of the reason we have a pre-retreat check-in with you!). Over the years we’ve had Melissa Ambrosini, Michael Maidens, Nina Tovey, Kim Morrison, Stacey Nelson, Jo Parker, etc (most of which are guest experts in our training) all come and share their wisdom and answer our questions, we’ve had alumni panels, we’ve done art therapy, we’ve learned how to incorporate partner yoga and playfulness into our teen workshops, we’ve told stories around the fire and learned the impact of story telling… and we’ve had time to work through whatever is needed to take your business to the next level (or get it going). Here’s a sample itinerary for a rough idea of what to expect (with ‘workshops’ being a mix of guest presenters and structured time for you to work on the things you need to):

Day 1

  • Check-in after 2pm
  • Arrive by 4pm
  • Welcome dinner and opening circle together


Day 2

  • National Park walk (optional)

  • Workshop 1
  • Lunch 
  • Workshop 2 
  • Personal time 
  • Dinner together in the villa 
  • Personal time

Day 3

  • Breakfast

Day 4

1.  What will I need to bring?

Comfortable clothes including warmer clothes (even though we’re in Queensland the nights can be cold in winter), swimmers, laptop/tablet and or notebook and pens, walking shoes, etc. We’ll provide a more detailed list as we get closer and confirm the details with you.

2.  Which airport?

Sunshine Coast Airport (MCY) is the closest option, around half an hour away, but Brisbane airport (BNE) can sometimes be more convenient with many more flights in service.  There are plenty of shuttle bus services from both airports that will drop you nearby (and we’ll come and pick you up from the drop-off point!).  Such as www.con-x-ion.com which costs around $50 each way from Brisbane airport.

3.  What if I want to stay elsewhere?

No worries – get in touch with us about what you’d like and we’ll see if we can accommodate you.

4. What if I want to extend my trip?

We encourage you to make the most of this and extend your trip either before or after the retreat. This is completely up to you to organise and is not included in the price of this retreat.

5. When will you know if it’s definitely going ahead?

We’ve already booked the venue but will make sure we have enough bookings by May 2022 before we confirm with you.
