About the Course

Empowering Primary-Aged Children

"Kids with Courage" is a comprehensive seven-session program designed to bolster primary-aged children (7-12 years) facing challenges in school, at home, or with peers. The program serves as both a preventive and interventional tool, focusing on building children's strengths and fostering emotional resilience. Developed by child educators, psychologists, and welfare workers, it integrates drama, puppetry, hands-on activities, and small group work.

Leadership Requirements:

  • Program Coordinator: Must have professional qualifications in child-related disciplines.

  • Facilitators: Should possess relevant qualifications or proven experience in working with children. All involved must have passed a police check.

The program features a lion mascot, symbolising problem-solving skills in a friendly, approachable setting. It offers a safe space for children to explore emotions, set goals, engage with peers, and discover constructive ways to initiate change.
