Problem Statement

How might we reduce violent attitudes in teens?


Customer / Problem

Parents can struggle to connect with their children. Relationships have a potential to become fractured during teenage years. Young people can resort to violent attitudes and behaviour during their teenage years to cope with difficult emotions.


Solution

No Violent Way is a wellbeing program that could be run in schools or community centres to help connect teens with the resources and support they need. The program would involve workshops with chaplains, counsellors and other key mentors to connect with youth and deter them from violent behaviour. No Violent Way empowers young people to master their emotions and feelings and respond in a healthy, constructive way.
