FRIENDSHIPS LDP BY SANJAY

Program Name:

Making Friendships that Work

For Who: 

Teens between 14-24 Years of Age

Mode of Delivery: Online

Where: Zoom Meeting App

Program Length: 4 Weeks

Duration/Session: 1 Hour

Frequency of sessions: 2/Month

Positive friendships are very important for teens to help them learn important social and emotional skills, like being sensitive to other people’s thoughts, feelings and wellbeing. Good friendships work as a personal support group. With meaningful friends teens not only have great fun but also develop a sense of belonging, and a strong feeling of being valued. Friendships also act as catalyst where teens tend to experiment with their ideas and gut feelings.

And since this world is co-owned by the other gender also teens learn to accept, respect, and get along with the opposite gender. Friendships also allow teens to relate and share their experiences without having to fear being labelled or judged. It is estimated that teens spend less time with their parents and much more time in the company of their friends!

When friendships are so important for teens why not guide them to ensure they are in the right company of friends, and not just creating a time log. This program will educate and mentor your teen to attract good friends –in both the real and virtual world.

Four sessions of an hour each, over a period of 4 weeks

Motivation is the key to every human accomplishment. It is what makes today’s ordinary people tomorrow’s achievers, innovators, and world leaders. This motivational current or drive isn’t a free-flowing product of nature, but more of a man-made turbo power used to provide people with a continued supply of energy required to achieving highly valued goals/vision.

In our time when there are a thousand things to distract us, it is not easy for a student to stay motivated and on task. Motivation is the force that enables students to seek out intellectual and experiential novelty and encourages students to approach unfamiliar and often challenging circumstances with anticipation of growth and expectation to succeed.
