Youth & Young Adult Programs

Cultivating Emotional Brilliance is a multi-week program for youth and young adults aimed to cultivate resilience and promote healthy family dynamics – all using pop culture references. Through weekly interactive workshops, sharing circles, and ongoing mentoring, participants aged 10-24 will develop essential life skills like effective communication and stress management.

We offer separate programs for girls and boys aged 10-14, and a mixed-gender program for ages 15-24. Topics include the following, and other, themes in terms of relating to self, parents and siblings:

  • Recognizing and responding to emotional triggers
  • Developing compassion and empathy
  • Managing anger and fear
  • Discussions on gender roles
  • Creating a personal vision for the future
  • Dealing with difficult emotions
  • Mindfulness and meditation to mitigate stress
  • Online and offline bullying
  • Peer pressure
  • Conscious sexuality
  • Active listening
