What will children do and experience?

  • Emotional Literacy: Gain a better understanding of their own emotions and those of others’, including how to build empathy and how to connect with others and empathize
  • Resilience: Develop the ability to bounce back from setbacks with a positive attitude.
  • Communication: Cultivate the art of expressing thoughts clearly and listening actively.
  • Teamwork: Through interactive activities, appreciate the power of collective effort and learn the importance of collaboration and contributing to a group effectively.

While our program provides an introduction, the goal is to ignite a passion for these life (soft) skills. Through hands-on learning activities, real-world applications, and guest speakers from various professional backgrounds, we seek to instill an enduring enthusiasm that will transfer to practical applications in their daily lives, encouraging continuous self-growth and exploration.
