Building Resilience in Young People
Foster resilience in young people so that they can bounce back from adversity and meet life’s challenges robustly. By encouraging self esteem, self efficacy, self awareness and self management we give them confidence in their capabilities, judgement and resources and help them to become independent and courageous individuals.
