About the Programme
RDN runs a mentoring programme called Life Skills, aimed at 13-18 year olds. Our sessions aim to:
- enable young people to have a larger vision of themselves by articulating their thoughts and communicating them effectively.
- build meaningful relationships with young people and help them decrease the unconscious level of self-hatred
- help young people acquire skills so they can help others in the community to achieve their full potential
- encourage young people to embrace challenges with enthusiasm and confidence
Here are some of the outcomes following the Life Skills programmes we have run in Heston and Hounslow.
