It is becoming more accepted that to be emotionally healthy is crucial in order to achieve a successful work/life balance. Most adults will understand the difference in their work when they make sure to look after their mental health. By coaching teenagers to improve their own emotional wellbeing, we can help impact every area of their lives.
The Motivation Project is a series of workshops taught in schools across the UK. We use dance and task led methods to improve emotional wellbeing in teens aged 11-18 (year groups 7-13). We cover several different topics including confidence building, body image and stress management. Every workshop is led by a Youth Impact Coach which means that the participants are free to form and express their own opinions.
The Motivation Project was created to help change the way that teenagers think and feel about themselves and the world around them. Emotional wellbeing can be overlooked in schools due to academic overload and it is our priority to change this. By using dance we can ensure that students leave the workshops feeling healthier and with a better mind-set for their studies.
