Adolescence is a period of great potential, because it is when kids transition into adulthood. Developing a problematic attitude or bad habits during this period can have problematic consequences, which is why it is so important to prevent and solve this.
Looking at the major issues of today we can conclude that academic education alone will not dissolve addiction, hatred, incomprehension, lack of respect and human dignity.
Parent, family and organizations that are interested in preventing Teen and Youth behavioral issues are faced with many programming options. The question remains of how to choose an appropriate program among those that are available.
You don’t have to fight this battle alone. If you are ready to find a solution for yourself or a loved one, “Winning in the game of life” and Exploring the journey of life is an after-school program, developed by SFK. This program improves children’s outlook and behavior measurably in just a few weeks. It is being taught in schools, communities in major cities of the United States, and in Africa since February 2019 (Benin & Ivory Coast).
- The program uses the analogy of a game. In life, just like in a game, we have rules, goals, players and challenges
- There are two players in the game of life: our two inner voices – our True Voice and the Opponent’s Voice.
- There are challenges: these are opportunities to help us become the best we can be.
Graduates of SFK:
- Have a stronger ability to manage tough emotions.
- Share, cooperate, and help more.
- Experience lower frustration levels and fewer clashes.
- Deepen their sense of responsibility.
- See challenges as opportunities.
- Express improved conﬁdence, tenacity, and grit.
- Have deeper connections with parents, siblings, and community.
- Grow greater self-worth, and show greater effort.
- Make wiser more compassionate choices.
Our action is guided by the Target 4.7 of the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 3.5 on Good health and well being) & SDG 4 on Education), which calls on governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to “ensure that all learners are provided with the knowledge and skills to promote sustainable development, including, among others, through education for sustainable development and sustainable lifestyles, human rights, gender equality, promotion of a culture of peace and non-violence, global citizenship and appreciation of cultural diversity and of culture’s contribution to sustainable development’.
We believe every person in the world should have access to social emotional education so they can make better life choices for themselves and the world around them – Michal Berg
