Prepare your students for life's challenges by allowing them to learn from experience
Supporting young people in navigating the stresses and strains of daily life is more important than ever. Young people face pressures at school, home and within themselves. While we may not be able to remove all these challenges, we can support young people by encouraging the development of skills to help them face these challenges with confidence. We can prepare them by teaching them strategies to help them cope with stress and adversity.
Resilience is the ability to overcome difficult experiences and be shaped positively by them. Our resilience incursions focus on developing crucial skills, allowing young people to respond with confidence to challenges and changes in their lives.
Because each young learner is unique, our programming allows for peaks, valleys, turbulence, excitement, periods of calm, and periods of activity. Students move through a sequence of outcome-based activities, prefaced with a briefing, and concluded with a debrief aimed toward self-reflection and recognition of one's own capabilities. This reflection is a vital part of experiential education.
Communication - a series of group activities wherein communication is vital. With each activity, students enhance their skills by understanding the importance of adapting their communication style.
Trust and empathy - group activities in which students must shift their focus and consider their peer's point of view. Using the communication skills they have gained, they must guide and support their teammates to overcome obstacles and complete various tasks.
Decision making and problem-solving – small group initiatives give students the opportunity to work together as a team and strategise. They must draw on self-control, self-efficacy and adaptability as they observe themselves and their peers succeed.
