Building Up Resilient Youth Through A Community Support Network


(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 .
