Resilience Programme for Young Men
We offer a bespoke Resilience Programme for young men in Kent to empower youth workers and outreach projects to engage with an increasingly growing demographic.
There has been a drastic increase in the amount of young men whom require access to mental health and wellbeing services. Is your organisation based in the Kent area and are working with young men who are at risk or are accessing these services? Our resilience programme for young men is a two-day course, which shares with practitioners the best approaches to choose, and deliver workshops using art, physical or life skills activities. In addition, we cover ways in which facilitators can outreach and engage with a traditionally hard to reach demographic. The course is suitable for staff within youth work, outreach and community engagement.
