Youth Program - Changing the way we think
In today’s society, we find that a great deal of pressure is being put on children and teens from societal constraints, media, cultural branding, etc. The common theme: if you don’t have ‘this’ you can’t have ‘that’. This is a challenge faced by children looking to find their place in any walk of life. Self-worth and self-esteem are a constant struggle, especially in the light of perceived social requirements. Our aim is to encourage a change in this mindset. We want to help youth understand that they are supported in what they do, and change how they approach the challenges of life, no matter their circumstances or situations.
To accomplish this goal, we’ve put together our Youth Program. Through the Youth Program, we engage in speaking programs within a school, and talk with the students about finding their inner strength, understanding their personal worth, and helping them build an overwhelming confidence in themselves. We also give the students tools to help overcome struggles, approaches to difficult obstacles, and how to face personal challenges. Through the conversation, we engage the students through question and answer sessions, physical events, and various demonstrations.
The purpose of this program is to help students understand they have the inner strength to try no matter where they are in life. Our hope is to impact the lives of elementary through high school students alike, and change the notion that you need 'this' in order to accomplish 'that'. We believe a little encouragement goes a lot way. Pairing encouragement, with a genuine desire to see a student succeed, shows a commitment of care that can make a lifelong impression. To find out more about our programs, learn about our services, or have general questions or comments, please get in touch with us! We look forward to talking with you soon!
- Where do you currently offer these programs? We currently operate in and around the Springfield, MO area. However, if you're located outside of this area, we love to travel! Let us know where you're at and what you're thinking, and we can work from there!
- What size of school do you offer these services to/ What if we have a small community group? Simply put, if you have a group that could benefit from positive encouragement and help with learning how to approach life's challenges, we'll be there.
- What are the costs of your program? We approach every opportunity as its own opportunity. If you're interested in having us come to your location, let us know and we'll start a dialogue to find out your needs, and build the program from there. Some of our costs are fixed, but many are flexible - free. In the end, it's about the impact.
