Our Community

The Online Academy community is lead by Shine From Within founder, Amanda Rootsey and many incredible youth mentors.

The facilitators and support personnel on all live classes have gone through a rigorous application process, training and continued support and up-skilling. They have completed 60+ hours of our award-winning Youth Mentor Training in addition to the many skills and expertise they already have in their chosen fields. They are not just adults who like the idea of telling their story to teens. This is what they do. They have their own thriving businesses and communities in their parts of the world.

How does it work?

10 x Live classes each month

These will be scheduled in at various time zones to ensure we’ve got some morning and evening classes to suit allll the timezones as best we can. Rest assured, every class will be recorded and you’ll have access to these within 24hrs of the class being run live as part of your membership. 

Classes for each month will be decided on by our selection committee (we have a LOT of amazing folks wanting to run classes for you who will submit their class ideas) and in consultation with current members. We’ll always aim to have at least one class in each of our categories; wellness, movement, activism, life skills and creativity and diverse voices and perspectives to ensure it’s a rich experience for members. 

A weekly check-in 

Every Sunday we’ll have a morning and an evening call (AEST) to jump on together with each other, have more time for members to connect and build relationships and set our intentions for the week ahead. These will be optional – we know some folks love to be able to do this and some are very happy to just come to the classes.

The Vault

The Vault is where we’ll add all past recordings at the end of each month and where you’ll find all of the O-Week recordings (most of them are ready to go already – yay!). We’ve been working around the clock to make sure you can catch up on the ones you’ve missed – they have all been incredible. 

Become a founding member

As a Founding Member, who has participated with us during O-Week, you’ll be locked into the monthly amount of AUD$25 per month (or $250/year) so that when we increase the price for the public, you’ll stay at this price. 

After this O-Week launch period, we’ll be releasing this to the public where the Vault access will be an additional level of membership and cost extra on top of the AUD$25 per month. 

Can we cancel? 

Yes! It’s a month-to-month membership so you’re not locked in for any longer than you pay for (the year or the month) and can cancel anytime. 

When do we start?

As soon as you register! When you join, you’ll receive an email welcoming you to the monthly membership and you’re account will automatically be upgraded. Next time you login here you’ll see ‘Vault’ as an option on the left menu and can start getting into these classes. We’ll let you know the October schedule for live classes and calls by the end of this week too.
