Why Be You
Why Be You offers a back-to-basics approach with workshops and presentations to support young people and parents to introduce a more loving, honest and respectful way of communicating with one another that empowers them to build trust, responsibility and accountability. Why Be You works with young people, parents, schools and youth groups to ensure a more supportive whole community approach to tackling some of the more challenging aspects of growing up. The programs are building life skills such as respectful relationships, dealing with stress and anxiety, bullying, anger management and finding your voice.
Additional Features/Information EVENTS: The Why Be You project looks at a whole community approach when working with young people, where 'it takes a village to raise a child'. School, home and community are all part of that village and therefore the programs, presentations and workshops have been designed to offer a rounded approach.
