Youth Resilience Program
Resilience is the ability to stay focused, curious and optimistic even in the face of challenges. Resilience is a learnable set of skills and we are passionate about bringing these skills to youth!
At growURpotential, we know the impact of ART. Creative expression has always been about feelings, and we use creative expression to help youth build awareness about their feelings.
Our Youth Resilience Program improves confidence, self-compassion, and empathy. By learning how to deconstruct the "artist block" of being reactively trapped in repetitive patterns with a limited range of responses to feelings generated by uncertainty and the unknown our students learn to embrace the anxiety that is generated by creativity (the creative process). When youth feel heard and understood, hope happens. And we have consistently found that this awareness improves mental health. We believe Youth deserve to trust their potential is real.
We welcome Community Partnerships!
Community Partnership is essential to growURpotential's mission and we are a preferred partner for psychotherapy and programming for nonprofits serving marginalized, under-resourced, and justice-oriented communities committed to quality care and ethical professional development.
Who is this Youth Resilience Program for?
This Youth Resilience Program is designed to empower at-risk youth. Both delivery methods, global and intensive, follow a curriculum to elevate self-regard and perception of individual potential.
What will students learn?
Our counselors deliver hands-on experiential learning alongside thought-provoking explorations that enhance self-directed behavior management. Students grow focus, build confidence, and elevate socialization skills while cultivating leadership qualities, diversity competence, and emotional intelligence.
