Upcoming Event
SYDNEY EVENT Wednesday 13th June 2018 at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour


Stand Tall is founded on the Christian values of faith, hope, love and compassion and celebrates individual journeys of triumph over adversity.

“Our students came back raving about the program… and motivated. We sent 100 students and every single one of them is in leadership this year”
- Roger Davis, Principal Westfields Sports High School
Stand Tall is about Australia’s future… motivating young Australians to make positive life choices that can change the course of their lives.
In one massive day, we address national high school curriculum outcomes for PDHPE and Christian Studies by gathering world class athletes, popular musicians, and inspirational speakers, who all share their life experiences in a relevant and relatable way to Australian teenagers.
We believe every young Australian has the potential to succeed and fulfill their dreams, and encourage students who attend a Stand Tall Event to:
  • stand tall for what is right
  • stand tall for positive choices
  • stand tall for friendship
  • stand tall for resilience
One massive day of positive input into a young Australian can change a life.

Stand Tall - The Event continues to bring messages of hope and resilience to young Australians throughout the year in addition to the incredible Event. 

We held our first camp for disadvantaged teen boys in Manly in January 2017. This camp was a life-changing experience for the youth who enjoyed learning new skills, meeting great friends and being supported by inspiring mentors over the four days. These students were nominated by their schools and have now returned to school transformed. 
We are looking forward to coordinating many more Champions Camps! 
For more information please feel free to contact Jeanine jeanine@standtallevent.com.
We are currently developing resources in collaboration with professional organisations for Year Coordinators / Teachers to use as a supplement to their current curriculum. These interactive resources are based on the wisdom and professional guidance of our amazing speakers and feedback from the past five years. 
If you would like more details on these resources feel free to email us info@standtallevent.com.

We are a group of business and sports people who have been blessed by growing up in a nation with arguably the greatest opportunities in the world.

We believe, absolutely, that Australia’s Generation Z have a great future, yet they face intense pressure to engage in an array of destructive influences as they enter their teenage years.

This event will address the desperate need to show them an inspiring alternative. It will be presented to them by some of Australia’s most exciting young speakers and musicians.

Stand Tall-The Event is our vision to show Gen Z a future and a hope.

We expect students will leave the Event with newfound inspiration and skills to live positive, healthy, fulfilling lives and the resolve to Stand Tall and resist the powerful negative influences that surround them in today’s society.
