Today in the 21st century, there is a particular crisis amongst young adults as it relates to self-confidence. Young men and women from all socioeconomic backgrounds struggle with feeling enough, positive decision-making, and overall self-esteem. The Rise Up For You Worldwide Team has recognized the top four challenges for students:

The great news is confidence can be developed through proven evidence-based strategies, which means that we can close the confidence gap, especially among underrepresented youth.

  • Not feeling good enough or afraid that they don't bring enough value to people

  • Sticking up for themselves and making positive decisions for long-term success instead of "fitting in with the crowd"

  • Feeling unsure about life and where to go after school—often due to societal pressures and social media programming

  • Finding it difficult to say no when needed and yes when a positive opportunity arises

Program Outcomes:

  • Learn strategies to increase overall confidence

  • Identify their own value and self-worth through strength-building and achievement exercises

  • Gain the ability to make more responsible decisions

The most successful individuals are the ones who adapt their thoughts and communication around the key elements of Emotional Intelligence (EI). Experts contend that EI is more important than the Intelligence Quotient (IQ) and actually accounts for 80% of success.

Through this transformative program, we provide students with an engaging curriculum and understanding around self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management, as well as dive into the 18 sub-competencies that affect our interpersonal behaviors.
