Burn Bright Began
The story of Burn Bright begins with another organisation, Rising Generations. Founded by Bec Heinrich and Tina Cameron, Rising Generations quickly grew to be one of Australia’s top organisations facilitating leadership programs. After 10 years and working with more than 100,000 students, they came to a natural finish in 2013.
Being one of Rising Generations youngest facilitators, Andy Skidmore decided the finish of Rising Generations didn’t have to be the end of its legacy and student leadership journey. In 2014 Andy officially founded Burn Bright with the vision of continuing and growing the legacy. Within a few months Andy and Layton Fraser set off with the goal of transforming how young people think, feel and act in their lives. They started Burn Bright in a home office, with no clients and no experience of running an organisation, just a vision for what it could be.
