Courage Youth Life Coaches that are assigned to
each school often support the school’s teachers by
equipping learners through CYM’s character based
life skills curriculum.
Courage Youth uses a great curriculum called Life at the CrossRoads. Learners are challenged beyond basic knowledge as they work in groups, in pairs and as a class to analyze concepts, explore their feelings, dream about the future and create a plan to make healthy decisions that are consistent with being a person of good character.
“I am a CY member because it teaches me to be the best.”
They emphasize six “pillars” of good character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.
The CrossRoads program is organized in five segments:
2. The Character Connection
3. Sex in Perspective
4. Life Skills
5. Navigating Your Future
