Life Matters Course is residential course for young adults to shape a path and purpose for living. The courses have run continuously since 1995, originally initiated by IofC Australia. These courses are based at Armagh, the Australia/Pacific Center for Initiatives of Change in Melbourne.
In 2012, the course started for the first time in the Asia Pacific region and it has then become Asia Pacific Life Matters Course.
The course gives a chance for participants to look at their lives and to develop news skills for living. The program is varied and interactive. It includes panel discussion, personal reflection, workshop, music, outdoor activities - and mixing with people from diverse walks of life and cultural backgrounds.
