The HappYouth initiative was started by Character and Leadership Academy to equip youth with the skills and knowledge to navigate the world as future leaders of themselves and their peers.
By educating the youths of today, we can empower the leaders of tomorrow to be mentally resilient and self-aware and independently sustainable.
How do we build a community of mentally resilient youth? By first enabling them to find happiness.
With frameworks like COPES, and PTCA youths will be able to be in control of their mental state and be more connected with their emotions.
Happiness is never just a one way street.
What goes around comes around.
