Programs for 7-18

Promoting social change through education


Skills and Tools
The programs designed for children and teenagers have the objective to help them identify the importance of a healthy self-esteem, use conflict management skills to solve problems and learn how to act in a peaceful and non-violent way.

They are designed to suit schools, sports clubs and any organization involved with youth. They can be tailored on demand.

A problem solving approach
The programs help young people not only to understand themselves, their friends and the adults around them but also and mainly to come up with solutions to prevent or reduce violent behaviors.

Train The Trainer
All programs incorporate modules that give the teachers, sports coaches and youth leaders the skills, the tools and the knowledge necessary to run a NVP educational program to young people.
