The Youth Project

Youth at risk impulse control, anger management, stress reduction

In 2003, The Lionheart Foundation launched The National Emotional Literacy Project for Youth-At-Risk. This project consists of two major programs:

1. The Power Source Program for highly at-risk adolescents

The Power Source Program was created to help highly at-risk adolescents break cycles of negative risk-taking, violence and addiction.

Through this initiative, adolescents learn social emotional learning strategies to carve out a new way of life – helping them break cycles of negative high-risk behavior; heal shame, anger and grief; and emerge with a new sense of self and a positive future orientation.

Power Source Parenting is awesome!   When I started reading the book I did not want to put it down.  I felt I could relate to the stories in the book whether I was 14 or 24 years old.  I am 24 now and I can remember when I had my first daughter at 14, having the feeling the teens in the book described. This book has offered not only many techniques and skills to better myself as a parent but has now offered me the opportunity to pay it forward.
