Two Rochester Secondary College students took part in Rotary Youth Program of Enrichment in Melbourne last weekend.
Meagan Baker and Isabelle Holt have dozens of new Facebook friends after their weekend of bonding, learning and sharing skills with their peers.
Ms Baker said she learned about teamwork, confidence building and her own identity, skills and passions.
Ms Holt enjoyed delivering oral presentations designed to boost self-confidence.
Ms Baker said as well as recognising their skills, they learned how to put them to use.
The students took part in trust activities where they had to close their eyes and were directed by their team mates.
They also had to share personal stories as part of the trust-based activities.
Ms Baker said she felt safe because everyone was there for the same reasons and wanted to help one another.
Rochester Secondary College teacher Bill Barkla said the pair showed natural leadership and he knew they would have enriched the weekend for the other attendees.
