Life Skills - Skills for Life

All children are born with the desire and the ability to learn. Children learn best through hands-on experiences and self-discovery, rather than through direct Instruction. Children learn best when the learning is self-initiated, arising from their own curiosity and interests, rather than imposed on them. These are some of the principles on which the life skill workshops are formulated upon. Each of these workshops are group counseling sessions that create a platform to sensitize children about various issues, and enables them to think and take responsibility by acting appropriately. Children are free to voice their opinion, debate, agree and disagree, introspect and while doing these they relate. They relate to problems around them, they relate to peers, they relate to environmental issues and they relate to their own emotions better.

Life skills training workshops aim at comprehensive synthesis of many successful strategies, that students master over a period of time and use them to cope with daily life situations. These sessions are designed to offer students high energy activities that teach, entertain, and prepare students for the rest of their lives. These hands on skills training is about learning to learn. Each element of these workshops contributes to the overall adjustment of the child with himself, with his peers, with his parents and with the environment at large leading to his success. These early year exposure and practice is imperative for internalizing the core values we want our adolescent to operate from.
