Youth at Risk

ENGAGING IN A POSITIVE WAY

Programs for Juvenile Correctional Centres and High School Students at risk

The R Youth Program

The R Youth Program has been designed to give young people (age groups from 11 years to 18 years) identified as “at risk” an understanding of their behaviour – the consequences of their behaviour and the strategies to deal with that behaviour in a simple and positive way. Raising empathy, building positive relationships and tools for emotional management, building resilience and personal values into daily life are also part of this proven program.

The program is suitable for co-educational groups, CALD groups or specific single gender groups.

Topics covered are:

  • Responsibility
    • Highlighting the impact of anti-social behaviour on the broader community
    • Raising the awareness of personal responsibility
  • Re-Evaluation
    • Past attitudes to a range of issues
    • Building values
    • Tools for positive change
  • Relationships
    • Dealing with emotions
    • Types of relationships
    • Goal setting strategies

We recommend separate sessions for teachers and parents to inform them and to assist in the best possible outcomes. On completion of the program attendees are given a certificate of attendance.

Time:  3 x 1.5 hour sessions
