Areas of work
Resilience training center
Working with young people is at the very center of our system of values. But the main task that we practice is to share our experience and knowledge with others- social workers, teachers, parents, guardians. We lead seminars where we cover various themes and values, all participants gain valuable information and a certificate. Our seminars are interactive, interesting and often take place outdoors.
"Resilience Center" offers various camp programs for children and young people- Resilience camps, foster children camps, adventure camps. They are led by certified camp leaders working with young people together with psychologists and mentors. The time in our camps passes by very quickly and children remember all the fun moments with their new-found friends as well as the interesting bonding tasks, language practice and sports.
National projects: ''PUMPURS'': ''Resilience in communication'' (cooperating with the ''Riga City Council's Department of Education, Culture and Sports''), ''Strengthening family's resilience'' (''Society Integration Fund'') and ''Promoting youth self-efficiency for reducing impact of pandemic'' (''The International Agency of Youth Programs''). International projects: ''Making my future - Enhancing lives of young people” (''Interreg Baltic'' program) and „Empowering child's strengths for violence prevention” (''The OAK Foundation'').
