What is Young Achievers Programme?
YAP is a dynamic interactive course that is designed specifically to assist children aged 10-14 years old to understand their unique talents and innate intelligence by participating in a real-life project. Children will be involved in coming up with a brand-new milkshake flavour for COSTA COFFEE. This will include drafting out research, finance, and strategic marketing.The cherry on top is that the final presentation will be viewed by the parents and the Costa coffee manager. Each participant will receive a certificate on successful completion of the programme.
We all know that children are naturally intuitive and perceptive. Since the young age, we start moulding them to comply with the education system and in doing so we restrict their natural pattern of mental growth which includes having wisdom beyond their years, sensing the connectedness of all things, or knowing things in ways that may seem impossible.
Unarguably, Academic growth is essential for career development but a 360° holistic approach requires a parallel focus on self-development. In an age where bullying, social media and cultural adaptability has put undue pressure on young minds, it’s pivotal that they should learn the key life skills of higher self-belief, deeper awareness and effective interpersonal skills to foster a positive outlook towards self and others. Once, they understand themselves better, it will directly result in a more fulfilled academic growth and also they will emerge as responsible global citizens.
Through this course, our aim is to acquaint children with important life skill by making them participate in real life projects resulting in a deeper understanding of themselves and the external factors affecting their behaviour. During this six weeks course, the focus is to develop an understanding of the importance of following factors to bring the best out of children. They will get to know the importance of:
- The power of the brain and innate intelligence to accentuate their strengths and overcome their weaknesses.
- Problem-solving skills for real-life challenges.
- Setting small goals for accomplishing big dreams.
- Analytical skills in order to think out of box
- Debating skills to share their own perspective and understand others respectfully.
- Presentation skills to confidently share ideas and thoughts with enthusiasm,
