Support Group for Teenagers, South Africa

volunteer with teenagers

Volunteer with Teenagers through our weekly Support Group. This project is aimed at providing local teenagers with an opportunity to discuss and learn about issues important to them; and to build their self-esteem through positive reinforcement.

This is an 8-part workshop covering the following topics:

  • Bullying
  • Peer Pressure & Gangs
  • Body image, Self-esteem & Puberty
  • Relationships & Sex (2 parts)
  • Effects of alcohol
  • Communication skills
  • Personal Development

As well as discussing these important topics we also encourage the participants to set personal goals and to consider how the choices they make affect their ability to achieve their goals. Many of the children we work with come from backgrounds that aren’t always able to provide the direction that they need to lead the best life possible. We hope that through our workshops we inspire the children we work with to make responsible decisions and be the best they can be!
