TEAM UP

TEAM UP is a social skills program that aims to help students re-engage at school, or develop in a positive direction, by focusing on leadership qualities. TEAM UP contains a variety of practical activities designed to build crucial life skills, with the weekly program including activities that aim to build resilience, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution, social competencies and skills around communication, patience, assertiveness and problem solving.

The team building exercises create a strong team mentality between all members and they learn to work together and focus on perseverance, goal setting and achievement, priority setting, decision-making and consequences. A strong outcome of the program is teaching young people how to resolve issues without resorting to violence and intimidation.
