Complete Time & Space is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for parents and/or mentors to fully involve themselves in their teenagers’ lives. To listen and to understand. And Complete Time & Space also fulfils every teenager’s dream: they get to tell their parents what to do!
Designed for middle secondary school students and beyond, Complete Time & Space is a single gender, six-session immersive experience that builds on the Time & Space junior programs. As the name suggests, Complete Time & Space represents a significant time commitment: two night-time sessions precede a weekend camp, which is followed by two further night-time sessions.
But you get out what you put in: the feedback Bill Jennings has received since he began running Complete Time & Space in 1997 has been overwhelmingly positive. The Complete Time & Space program has the potential to change relationships for life.
It’s said that it takes a village to raise a child. Complete Time & Space involves the whole village: teenagers’ grandparents and opposite sex parents are involved in some of the sessions that precede and conclude the program. In between, teens lead their parents (spoiler alert: parents are only allowed to give ONE piece of advice for the entire weekend!) through an adventure camp that could include hiking, kayaking, etc. Parents/mentors receive the unique experience of seeing their teens’ strengths reflected through the eyes of other parents, as well as making new friends and getting a little ‘downtime’ (phew, not another weekend spent rushing around).
Complete Time & Space is not only the experience of a lifetime, it offers a lifetime’s worth of experiences. And these can form the foundation for positive parent-teen relationships all the way into adulthood.
