This Summit offers a seminar and training to motivate and inspire secondary school student leaders which are predominantly school prefects to become great leaders, role models and positive influences among their fellow students rather than being bullies.
Research shows that while childhood is usually a time of fearless exploration and possibility, adolescence brings with it such hazards as depression, eating disorders, peer pressure and more. Believing that they have very few options, adolescents often turn to such limiting choices as too-early sexual involvement, drinking, unhealthy relationships, and other risky, self-destructive behaviors. In addition, the media has a greater influence and effect on the social lives and decision-making of adolescents than ever before.
This half-day training designed for teenagers and secondary school prefects will explore many causes of low self-esteem in both boys and girls, address social factors (such as family, peers and the media) and identify feasible strategies for helping adolescent boys and girls feel empowered and hopeful about themselves and their futures.
The event envisages a gathering of more than 150 secondary school students who will be trained to build a healthy self esteem that will induce confidence rather than pride, timidity and insecurity in them and also be a reference point that can positively influence their fellow students.
