My FRIENDS Youth is a group-based program that equips participants with the necessary tools to overcome new challenges that are commonly experienced by the 12- to 15-year old’s. This program empowers early-teens to deal with stressful situations by norma


Adolescence is a transition period in which new challenges such as higher study loads, peer pressure, friendship difficulties, and physical development are faced. As this can be a stressful and difficult time for many adolescents, My FRIENDS Youth empowers its participants with positive coping skills and resilience to navigate setbacks and transition successfully to senior high school.

My FRIENDS Youth focuses on integrity to self and positivity in the face of peer pressure, which is crucial during this volatile time of life. The program equips participants to build positive relationships with others with confidence, self-esteem, and brave and positive verbal and non-verbal communication.

Developed by Dr Paula Barrett, My FRIENDS Youth is based on years of research and is used world-wide to empower countless individuals.

My FRIENDS Youth is divided into 5-sessions of 2-2.5 hours per session and can be delivered by trained and certified facilitators. To help participants remember the FRIENDS skills and to provide structure to the program My FRIENDS Youth uses the following acronym:


  • Feelings (try to be aware of feelings and regulate negative feelings)
  • Relax (do “relaxation” breathing, meditation and have some quiet time)
  • I try to think helpful (positive thinking)
  • Explore solutions (step plans and problem-solving techniques)
  • Now Reward Yourself (quality time together doing fun activities)
  • Don’t forget – be brave! (practice skills every day with friends /family)
  • Stay happy and talk to support networks
