In early 2018, Awakened Lifestyles partnered with the Queensland Government's Transition to Success program to run a 12 week course for at risk youth progressing through the Youth Justice system.
This program focuses on emotional skill building to encourage the kids to break out of the cycle of their past and to prevent them from entering into the criminal justice system as an adult.
Through mindfulness, building self esteem, and going through activities to help them building a greater understanding of their own thoughts and behaviour patterns, we create a safe space for young people to be themselves and to look towards a brighter future where anything is possible.
Our youth programs are not designed to fix. Rather, we take a love-based approach to bring them back to life. It is through our own lived experience of overcoming adversity that we are able able to show them a different path.
