Our youth need love, attention, encouragement and care, but most of all they need Personal Development and Self-Awareness to empower them to provide all of that to themselves!
This also gives them a clear connection to their identity, attributes, passions and a sense of purpose for direction and the ability to make positive life choices.
How can they know which subjects to choose?
How can they balance school, life, friends and work?
How do they know which friends to hang with?
How do they grow in self-confidence, self-acceptance and self-worth?
How can they manage the stress of pressure and expectations from parents, teachers, friends and community?
Through knowing, understanding and embracing thier unique gifts, passions, personality and experiences and living it out loud.
