A program for promoting self-awareness, team work, leadership and community action
Change Agents is a curriculum-based program aimed at supporting young people to bring about changes in their lives and in the world around them.
As the title suggests, it is a programme that promotes young people’s abilities, talents and skills, and encourages them to use their interpersonal resources in thoughtful and respectful ways.
Change Agents is about supporting young people who are striving to be their best for themselves and within their relationships with others and with their wider community.
(a) change is possible, (b) individuals have within them the resources, strengths and skills to bring about the kinds of changes they are seeking, and (c) when people are supported and encouraged to draw on these resources, they are more likely to bring about helpful changes.
Drawing from these basic premises, the programme focuses on bringing to life and harnessing the interpersonal resources of young people in four inter-related areas:
• Knowing Yourself
• Working With Others
• Leading Others
• Taking Community Action & Making a Difference
