Power to be Positive is a wellbeing and resilience program facilitated by Port Adelaide Football Club players and staff to children in Australian Defence Force (ADF) Families.

The program is based on core wellbeing philosophies and practices used by the PAFC players. This includes Curriculum areas such as mindfulness, gratitude, fixed vs growth mindsets, values and goal-setting.

The Power to be Positive program is linked with the South Australian School Curriculum: Wellbeing for Learning and Life framework which focuses on supporting children and young people’s development.

In addition to the school program, Australian Defence Force families are invited to an annual Family Event along with the opportunity to attend the ANZAC Round game at Adelaide Oval to meet players and form the guard of honour on field. This year the families were joined by the Australian Defence Force AFL All-Stars prior to their annual ANZAC Round Challenge game against the Australian Emergency Services. The ADF All-Stars delivered a fun football clinic with PAFC players for Defence families.

The program is also delivered in Penang, Malaysia to ADF personnel and families that have been posted to RMAF Butterworth. The program is delivered to three International schools and delivered to soldiers on the RMAF Butterworth base that have been posted to Malaysia as part of an arrangement between the Australian and Malaysia governments.
