CYC Trust 24-7 Youth Work Programmes:

Peer Smart

• Peer smart aims to create an environment for young people to explore four key topics:

o Friendships
o Dealing with stressful or difficult situations
o Positive thinking
o Resiliency

• Aimed at school years 7-9 for both male and female.
• We aim to equip these students with positive life skills, help them to develop healthy and sustainable relationships, and resiliency.
• One course a term for both male and female respectively.
• Typically seeing 5 to 10 young people per course.

 

ChiX

• This program is for young women who may be struggling with low self worth and poor self care.
• ChiX offers a forum where:

o The myths around the industry standards of beauty and unrealistic personal expectations are deconstructed.
o New perspective is shown and participants are encouraged to embrace their own uniqueness and celebrate the uniqueness in others.
o The program identifies some of the decisions young people make due to stress, and how to deal with this.
o It looks to educate youth around the risk attached to unhealthy decision-making and help instill sustainable positive responses.

• The course is offered over a 2 day workshop. One course per term, typically seeing 8 to 10 young people per course.

o Follow-up mentoring is available when required.

 

Butterfly Symposium

• Aimed at year 9 girls as an intro to ChiX.
• Butterfly Symposium operates in the same way as ChiX but at an introductory level.
• The course aims to dissect issues around self-esteem and worth. It also delves in to safety on social media and healthy relationships
• The course is offered over a 2 day workshop. One course per term, typically seeing 8 to 10 young people per course.

o Follow-up mentoring is available when required.

 

The Rite Journey

• Aimed at at year 10- 13 males.
• The Rite Journey helps to support the development of self aware, resilient, and responsible young people.
• Given the lack of Rites of Passage in the western world, young people are left to invent their own which can often result in unhealthy and unsafe behaviour. The Rite Journey reinvents the traditional process of a Rite of Passage to assist in aiding the young person to become more responsible, driven, and choosing to make healthy decisions.
• The course is held twice a year in term 2 and 3.
