Program Description: 

 The Teacher Development program aims to train a wider range of teachers and community workers to facilitate the development of Life Skills amongst young people in their own schools and regions. Teachers, facilitators, community workers,youth workers and educators are trained to deepen impact to unlock potential of young people. The program uses a life skills approach to nurture empathy, expand their creativity, develop listening and validation skills and the ability to share with authenticity while also learning facilitation skills. The model has been adapted from the Creative Community Model developed by Partners for Youth Empowerment (PYE).

Key Challenges: 
One of the biggest challnges is to ensure all teachers who have enrolled continue to particpate and complete all the 4 phases of training. Building human resources to deliver the program is another challenge. Gaining funding is also a challenge.
