Take It EASY (Empowerment And Self-Esteem for Youth) is a targeted prevention program that addresses the complex issues facing young people. This program is designed for children in grades 5 and 6 and is facilitated at the local schools.
Take It EASY is a BGC National program. National programs assist to build the capacity for future success of children and youth by:
- tackling youth issues that are at the heart of every community;
- believing in the potential of Canadian children and youth;
- making our communities better places to live and grow up.
The objective of Take It Easy is to create strategies to help foster the self-esteem and confidence of preteen participants and enable them to make more informed decisions about the challenges they face in life.
Candidates for the school programs will be selected by school staff.
Topics: Self-Esteem, Body Image, Gender Stereotypes, Healthy Relationships, Bullying and Online Safety.
Ongoing skills and themes throughout the session are leadership, conflict resolution, problem-solving, respect and social skills.
This program is set up in a group atmosphere. The content of this program is delivered through discussion and activities. Certain topic material may be sensitive to some participants. Age-appropriate information will be delivered to the program participants.
