SUPPORT

We work alongside schools and youth justice services to engage young people and support them in positive direction. We offer a range of programs that effectively provide positive change for all young people.

Each session has specific objectives based on IAA’s program planning. Elements within the program include:

 

Positive psychology: Beginning with building rapport with the young people, instilling set ground rules, and establishing foundational elements of shared language and basic session structures. These are informed by growth mindset and grit literature, organisational and positive psychology. 

 

Physical health and well-being: The physical component challenges the young people physically and mentally, This provides an opportunity to build resilience and to approach challenging situations as an opportunity to learn, rather than a win and/or loss, working as a team and problem solving.

Our programs provide tools for positive self-esteem, communication, goal setting, social skills, trust, relationships and conflict resolution.
