Building Up Resilient Youth Through A Community Support Network

鞏固社區支援網絡有助於培養青少年的堅韌力

(October 28, 2016 – Markham)

Resilience is an art of living that can be nurtured over time. It’s a holistic and multidimensional approach to foster one’s well-being through ongoing physical, intellectual, social, emotional, and spiritual development with healthy support systems involving family, school, peer support, and communities. Resiliency is not a new idea, but renewed focus has brought this topic to light in recent years. It is a combination of skills and positive attributes that one acquires through their life experience and relationships and is imperative in a youth’s ability to cope with change and challenges and for future successes. This trait is especially important to build in East Asian youth who exhibit low emotional well-being compared to other ethno-racial background youth.

Across U-hub is a charitable organization and is a community support system for East Asian youth. This charity will be entering its 15th year of service in the GTA and focuses on six key aspects to building up resilience in East Asian youth and young adults. The six elements are self knowledge, basic life skills, emotional skills, self efficacy, optimism, and interpersonal skills. Across U-hub will announce a five year roadmap to “Build Resilience in Youth” at its Annual Celebration and Fundraising Gala on November 13, 2016. This roadmap will identify plans to develop physically and mentally healthy youths and young adults who are resilient to challenges through the integration of the six resiliency elements into the regular programming and through the community culture.

Across U-hub’s Annual Celebration and Fundraising Gala will take place on November 13th at Le Parc Conference and Banquet Centre in Thornhill. For tickets, please call 905-944-1944, or visit the website at www.acrossuhub.com .

堅韌力是一種生活態度,是一種需要長時間培養的人生哲學。透過個人的身心,智力和情商發展,以及家人,學校和同伴的支持,堅韌力能夠全面及多角度地提升個人的健康。其實堅韌力並不是新興的主義,只是近年的青少年問題令堅韌力的重要性得以重新獲得重視。通過不同的人生及交際經驗,青少年更能夠訓練出正面的思考能力,學會運用堅韌力來面對未來的改變及挑戰,邁向成功的人生。相比其他種族背景的青少年,東亞青少年較容易出現負面的情緒及身心發展問題。所以,我們更加需要培育東亞青少年的堅韌力,協助他們發揮潛能。

「燃動青年」是一個致力為東亞青少年提供社區援助的慈善機構。而明年是「燃動青年」踏入第十五年在大多倫多地區服務青少年。「燃動青年」將於2016年11月13日舉行的周年慶祝及籌款晚會,會上將宣佈一項為期五年的計劃,名為「青少年堅韌力培育計劃」,透過六大要素去培育出東亞青少年的堅韌力,這六大要素包括自我認識,基本生活自理,情緒管理,訂立目標,學習樂觀處事態度及人際關係技巧,呼籲社區廣泛支持,務求令青少年學習運用堅韌力建立全面身心發展。

「燃動青年」周年慶祝及籌款晚會將會於2016年11月13日假康山Le Parc Conference and Banquet Centre舉行。有興趣者可以致電905-944-1944或瀏覽網址www.acrossuhub.com查詢票務詳情。
