Positive Child and Youth Development

The Family Resiliency Center aims to help families foster positive development in children and youth which will help them meet current challenges and future demands of adulthood. We are identifying processes whereby young people develop initiative, teamwork, responsibility, motivation, emotional skills, self-esteem, emotion regulation, sense of identity, multicultural orientation and the ability to build connections to adult worlds.
