We have developed psycho-educational curriculum for students aimed to help them achieve academic success. This curriculum was approved by the principals, guidance and social workers and implemented to students in groups and workshops. The groups will aim to help students explore and learn self-care techniques that will lead to improved academic success.
Testimonials from students:
“The group has helped me to realize how capable I can be in school. I’ve learned a lot in this group thanks to the facilitators, who taught us self respect and how to be responsible.” – T.S
“The group helped with my school work and achieving my academic potential. It has been a pleasure for me to be a part of this group.” –Q.E
“The activities helped me to explore the country and its environment. This has helped me reach my goals and understand what I want to be in life. Some of the movies we watched taught us how to conduct ourselves. And taught us to dream big and become successful in life.” L.V
“The group has helped me a lot. I used to get into a lot of trouble and argue with people in school; but when I started going to the girls group it changed me a lot. I started going to school on time and doing my homework and being more responsible.” –L.V
