The Motivated Child Initiative

Teenagers are terrified of two things. They fear judgment of their loved ones and peers and are constantly worried about their privacy. As stake holders in their wellbeing, we need to empower them with our belief in their abilities and lend them an ear without judgment. These are the principles behind our modules within The Motivated Child Initiative for 6th to 8th graders. 

Every Initiative has three Series that have modules in them to Engage, Energize and Empower our children
