Youth who are prepared for adulthood are comfortable demonstrating fundamental life skills such as communication, cultural competence, conflict resolution, and the ability to cope. Youth programs can help young people develop self-efficacy — a belief in their own capacity to succeed — by providing opportunities to learn and practice these skills in real-life settings.

Teens and Tweens face social pressures and conflicting messages about how they should act and who they should be. Studies show that by adolescence, their confidence drops, Friendships become more complicated and challenging, perception of their academic ability declines, the likelihood of anxiety and depression increases and participation in physical activity plummets.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Lifeway House is hosting a life skills workshop this week from the 2nd- 9th of December.

Here are the skills they hope to impart on Tweens and Teens in  Nairobi this holiday.

Confidence

Lessons are designed to build their self-worth and help them feel greater confidence in who they are. Activities help tweens and teens recognize their personal strengths and teach them how to stand up for themselves and others.

Character

By gaining awareness of the power they possess to make intentional decisions, they learn to choose positive actions which demonstrate respect and responsibility towards themselves and others.
