PARENTS / BULLYING / ANGER / FRIENDSHIPS / DRUG ABUSE / PEER PRESSURE
Based on the 12 Step Model of Recovery that has helped people across the world, Stay Real deals with these real problems in a real way.
- Dealing with life issues
- A place young people can talk and be listened too
- Safe place with a sense of belonging
- Learning trust, respect and honesty
- Non-threatening and non-judgmental
- Meets young people where they are at
Stay Real is not counselling therapy but it can create links with community organisations that will help develop positive changes being made by a young person.
Scripture Union currently runs Stay Real in partnership with Crossroads youth with a future trust in Aranui, Christchurch. Young people meet regularly with a facilitator at the Depot, formerly a shop, near Aranui High School. Using the twelve steps, they talk about issues they face and discuss how to deal with them better.
The programme is offered free of charge to schools, youth groups and community organisations.
The programme also includes adventure camps with activities like canoeing, climbing and hunting.
We can help churches across New Zealand with simple resource ideas and tips on how to best work with at risk youth
