The House

Team Building

Aims to promote cooperation and team work. The main goal is to work on peer cohesion and sense of belonging, making each youth understand the value each one brings to the home.

Communication

From verbal to non-verbal communication, the young people are expected to understand the importance of communication and what can influence this process in a positive or negative way. The main point is to train assertive communication strategies, making them understand the advantages this communication style brings to interpersonal relationships.

Problem Solving

Understand how to react towards a problem-situation is the starting point of this unit. The idea is, through the presentation of a set of challenges, help young people to develop skills of problem solving. The goal is that, gradually, each one could transfer these strategies for the problems they face in their daily life.
