Resilient Kids is a Rhode Island based organization promoted to helping youth in grades K-12. After watching the videos, I can't help but wish this was around for me growing up. The organization focuses on reducing stress, facilitate learning and to and help with personal growth. Growing up, we were never taught what stress even was, nevermind how to manage it. It really wasn't until high school where stressed kicked in. Junior year was the worst. Looking into colleges, preparing and taking the SAT or the ACT, getting ready of prom, taking drivers tests and still trying to maintain a decent average. I feel this program would have definitely benefited me in high school.
I love the idea of the workers setting them up with a toolbox on "how to's" rather than just telling them what they're doing is wrong and telling them to stop. Not everyone learns by being told what to do, so opening up the toolbox is expanding their horizons gives them more tools to use to help them cope in other ways. This is definitely an organization I could see myself working for.
