JOY for Children, youth & Young adults (aka – UP4JOY)
UP4JOY is the name for our many tailored branches to supporting young people. Each of these are co-created withour beneficiaries, ensuring our joy sessions are for all young people. This includes specific sessions for ECD, Youth and Young Adults. As an overview – here’s how our UP4JOY – joy works:
The UP has been running Outreach Joy sessions at ECD centers since 2020, offering young children the opportunity to release energy, play, resolve emotions, and learn coping skills. We have collaborated with MasiCorp in Cape Town, running rewarding sessions that both children and teachers loved. Through these sessions, we create a joyful and supportive environment for the development of young minds.
Joy for Youth & Young Adults
UP conducts numerous outreach joy sessions at youth centers, schools, and children’s homes. We tailor each session to the specific group and provide JOY tools to help participants manage difficult emotions, develop empathy and cultivate joy in their own lives. Through these interventions, we empower young individuals to to face up to their limitations and live their best lives. Now we also have UP4JOY – the all win together – transformation game, see below for more.
