Reach Out Zone

The Activation

Happy Boosters built a happiness activation called the Reach Out Zone. The activation was designed with the positive psychology principle in mind that having strong relationships and showing kindness enhances our well-being.

The activation, which is a play on the popular ‘selfie’ concept, encourages participants to write and send personalised messages of encouragement and support to one another during times of stress.

The boards were custom built and hand painted by a well known Melbourne artist.

Each board is a one-of-a-kind design, with each looking to inspire and reflect the personality of the user.

Feedback from participants following the experience was overwhelmingly positive. Whether there were laughs, cries or smiles, each said the experience helped them build a true emotional connection.

Reactions

“Seeing the engagement of students that the Happy Boosters ‘Reach Out Zone’ achieved, I am extremely thankful to Happy Boosters for not only coming up with such a inspired idea, but also allowing the students to share this fulfilling and enriching experience with each other. Antoinette and Olivia planned an activity which reinforced the wellbeing and awareness aims of Stamp Out Stress day, which is one of the largest student event held on campus, and were professional and organized in delivery of the activity. The creativity expressed brought smiles to many students’ faces and was a highlight for the event. I would recommend Happy Boosters to other schools and educational institutions.”

“Happy Boosters provided Chisholm students with amazing interactive hands on experiences that tied into our Orientation and Check In Week Programs. Antoinette and Olivia engaged with our students across all campuses and were a big hit at all or events. Many of our students are from CALD backgrounds or are new migrants, the Happy Boosters team made their activities accessible and friendly to people of all works of life and made our event space safe and positive. If you are looking to engage your customers, students or clients you should get in touch and see what experience they can provide for you. Thank you so much guys, look forward to working with you again soon!”
