The Three Guiding Concepts
Providing Tools – we provide teenagers with a lifelong "Toolbox" (e.g. team work, interpersonal communication, and perseverance) that has an essential and lasting value, and that will aid them at every stage of their lives, through diverse experiences.
Creating a Group of Equals – a significant peer group and a sense of belonging are central needs for people in general, and for teenagers in particular. Our groups provide teenagers with a supportive place to develop and acquire social tools and skills, while gaining a sense of social and emotional security.
Social Responsibility and Involvement – as a means of developing a sense of self-efficacy and as a civic value we try and live up to, we wish to encourage the teenagers to take responsibility for their surroundings and be leaders in their community.
