Young people must grow up with the correct attitude of freedom, convinced that, "...a person is more precious for what one is than for what one has..."
By giving young people the opportunity to receive correct information and learn how to live by their values, we are enabling them to make the right choices and become responsible and respectful individuals
...Developing young people of Integrity, Service and Good Character - Responsible community members and Leaders of Today and Tomorrow.
Dare to be Different...Say NO to Negative Peer Influence!!!
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed young people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Purpose of the Basic Counseling Skills Training Project

Young people are facing many challenges in their lives and most of them do not have any idea how to deal with these challenges. They desperately need someone to talk to but they may not know how to reach us or other professional counseling services. In answer to this, Youth Alive has developed a counseling skills training workshop targeting peer educators.

The Basic Counseling skills workshop empowers peer educators in communities with the techniques and skills needed to effectively talk to and counsel community members at any time and in any situation. This ensures that anyone in the community can access counseling services right there at their school, college or community. The program also extends to adults working with young people in educational and religious institutions.
