Creating Change from Within

You can't transform the world until you transform yourself. We follow this philosophy and start off our workshops focusing on life skills - where students take time to reflect on who they are, who they would like to become, and what type of world they'd like to live in.

Topics include:  Goals and Dreams, Self-Esteem, Decision Making, Emotional Intelligence and Communication.

We emphasize participatory learning and creativity through the use of student-led discussions, creative visualization, games and videos.

 
Today I have learned about how to set a goal in my life and I discovered my dream. I know that in my life I can be an important person in this world. I learned also the ways that I can use to achieve my goal. I got the best methods of planning and managing to reach my goal.

Educate


Educate


We educate students on community development - helping them to understand the depth and complexity of issues their communities are facing. RENEW partners with other grassroots organizations, bringing in staff members to come teach and speak to the students on their area of expertise. Some of the areas of development we teach include: Public Health, Gender Empowerment, Environmental Conservation, Economic Development and Civic Participation.

You can know what you want to become or who you want to become when you grow up if you can identify your values. Youth can do community service in order to develop their communities. All youth should know different skills in order for them to overcome challenges in life by using correct decision making.

Nurture


Nurture


We nurture leadership and life skills, to develop students as leaders - within their schools & communities.

 
Something that I learned yesterday is that being a leader is not a matter of being elected or appointed but you can stand yourself as a leader and guide a group of people towards a certain achievement or goal.

Empower


Empower


We empower students to act as leaders in their communities.

Students create, develop and implement their very own community service projects.

I can use things I learned in the workshop to bring change to the community and the world by showing and sharing what I have learned and showing them an example through myself.

Wear


Wear


In order to build awareness and raise money for the organization and our programs, we create shirts which RENEW supporters can wear. Students come up with the messages for the shirts and inspire the designs - which are created by professional artists. This participation gives students a sense of pride and ownership - they are able to help fund projects they've created through the sales of shirts they've helped design. The impact they are able to make in their community comes as a result of their own creativity and effort. Likewise, RENEW supporters are proud to wear a shirt that stands for something - it enables young people to make a difference in the world.
