Description

I AM…..

Our youth struggle with self-esteem problems more now than ever, in a time when America’s is bombarding them with so many confusing messages about their roles, who they are and what is expected of them. The youth suicide and depression rate is at a high due to all the confusing message when all they want to do is exist, fit in and matter.

Here are some facts about our youth and low self-esteem:

  • It is a thinking disorder on how they view themselves as unlovable, incompetent, or inadequate
  • 7 out of 10 teenagers feel that they are not good enough and do not measure to others in some way; looks, performance and relationships.
  • Young ladies self-esteem is strongly related to their own view of how they look (body shape, weight, etc.)
  • Teenagers with low self-esteem are 4 times more likely to take part in activities that they've ended up regretting later
  • Over 70% of teenage girls feel bad about their looks and avoid normal daily activities like school
  • At least 75% of girls has been reported with engaging in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating
  • 44% of girls in high school are attempting to lose weight
  • All teenagers wish for more and better communication with their parents
  • Over 20% of teens will experience depression before they reach their adulthood

We will be hosting workshops and seminars that will focus on building our youths self-esteem through several exercises, tools and technics we will provide. We will assist them with strengthening their self-identity, as well as help them to understand why their uniqueness is important & matter to the world’s existence. Our workshops and seminars not only build individual self-esteem, it also is used as a tool for team building skills.
