Slide 1

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.
Viktor Frankl

Slide 2

A person is a fluid process, not a fixed and static entity; a flowing river of change, not a block of solid material; a continually changing constellation of potentialities, not a fixed quantity of traits.  
Carl Rogers


Education comes from the Latin prefix e- and the verb ducere, meaning to lead forth. Education is about creating the condition where the student can lead forth his/her full potential

Youth Effectiveness Training

Youth Effectiveness Training (Y.E.T.) designed for teenagers at various places in their lives; those who are coping well, those having difficulty taking responsibility for their daily lives or those with challenges at school or strained relationships at home. Y.E.T. provides kids with healthy alternatives to under-functioning coping mechanisms such as rebellion, retaliation, lying and the like.


As adolescence is a challenging time, it can be difficult for teens to figure out who they are, to know what’s important to them, to realize what they’re good at, and make plans for their future. It can also be a challenge for them to make and keep friends, to know what to do or say when they get really mad or scared or when they get teased or bullied. In addition, there is the relationship with their parents/teachers; they want to get along with parents/teachers but doing so is not always easy.

What Youth Will Learn:

  • To become aware of their important needs
  • To talk straight about their needs, concerns and problems without blaming others
  • To make and keep friends
  • To tune into others and listen with empathy to understand their point of view
  • To overcome fears that block them from doing what they want to do
  • To resolve conflicts with friends, family and others instead of arguing and fighting
  • To relate to people who are different from them
  • To develop an action plan for their meeting important goals

How They Will Benefit:

  • They understand themselves and others better
  • They develop skills that they can use in all their relationships and throughout their lives
  • They can meet their own needs and goals and overcome fears that block them
  • They have empathy for and understanding of other people
  • They can they get along well with others and can make and keep friends
  • They can resolve problems and conflicts peacefully
  • They experience less stress and tension in their lives both at home and at school
  • They have higher self-esteem and increased self-confidence

Workshop Description:

The Y.E.T. workshop will include creative activities, games and skillbook exercises that appeal to kids. They will also participate in role playing and other engaging activities that make it fun for them to learn the Y.E.T. skills. Youth Effectiveness Training is divided into 10-12, 90-minute segments for easy integration into the teenage schedule. Y.E.T. trainings take place upon demand.
