Project Wayfinder

Inspiring students to live with purpose and belonging.

Independent Schools Victoria partners with Project Wayfinder to assist in creating lives of meaning and purpose for both students and educators.

Founded at Stanford University’s d.School, Project Wayfinder provides an innovative, student wellbeing curriculum using two toolkits:

  • Belonging (Years 7-9)
  • Purpose (Years 10-12)

The toolkits are inspired by cutting-edge academic research and draw on practices of traditional wayfinding navigation as a metaphor for stepping into life with purpose.

ISV delivers Project Wayfinder to schools across Australia.

Become a Project Wayfinder educator

Become a Project Wayfinder educator and help your students navigate life with purpose and belonging.

Each toolkit requires a full day of training – which can be done online or onsite, pending COVID-19 restrictions – enabling you to deliver this year-long curriculum at your school.

Limited Purpose and Belonging lessons are available this year for schools that register to facilitate the curriculum in 2021.
