Chin Up Project workshops offer primary prevention tools to young men and woman aged between 12-24 years old. Those in crisis, demonstrating high risk-taking behaviors or who are involved with the justice system derive particular benefit from our program.
A multimedia pack featuring a series of video interviews is the beating heart of the Chin Up Project, the common link through all the workshop content.
Each interview offers a relatable, socially and ethically responsible adult to provide as an attainable and realistic role-model. The workshop draws on a theme that emerges from the video interview.
Our workshops form a truly unique portrayal of the beauty in real peoples relationship with morality and is an incredibly powerful platform on which to engage young people.
The Young Men's and Young Women's workshops run for 60 minutes per topic (as listed below). We can deliver one stand-alone session in response to an identified need, however, the program is best afforded with the sessions running in sequential order.
This thorough delivery of the content enables young people to navigate their emotions by championing pro-social skills, matured and rehearsed to provide the benefit of mentoring, coaching and experiential learning.
The content is aligned with the Respectful Relationships curriculum (VIC), although through a process of consultation our facilitators will ensure that the deliverables are specific to the beneficiary in consideration of age, circumstance and the host organisations objectives.
Most sessions include an engaging mix of group discussion, small group work, multimedia case studies, self-reflection, individual exercises and practical scenarios. Both the 'Violence pt. 2' and the 'Cycles' sessions include some role-play and psychodrama activities.
