Wiring the young ones
Teenage years can be tumultuous, marked by periods of struggling, in an effort to discover one’s own identity, whilst trying to navigate social environments in order to try to fit in. The adolescent may find him/herself confronted with decisions pertaining to morality, trying to differentiate between right and wrong. Regardless of the challenges this phase brings, we believe their fullest potential can be fulfilled, with appropriate guidance and support.
At The New Charis Mission, we believe in impacting the next generation before they go wayward. To us, it is not just about changing their behaviour, but inculcating new mindsets and thought patterns, learning their strengths and unlearning the maladaptive, for more pro-social behaviour.
Our trainers, marked with skill, passion and personal experience, are able to identify with the challenges these youths face. The transformation stories of our mentors have been inspiring motivation for hope and change in the lives of these youths.
According to National Youth Council’s “Youth Statistics In Brief 2018”, the number of youth arrested for crime are as follows :
