“I Know Me Best” project in CLV Youth Services made possible by a grant from Variety – The Children’s Charity.

March 13, 2017

We are pleased to announce our new “I Know Me Best” project in CLV Youth Services. Our aim is for youth to develop self-awareness and a set of skills that equip them to confidently navigate relationships. Healthy relationships require self-regulation. By learning sensory and cognitive strategies, youth will be better prepared to respond appropriately to the challenges that life can present.

This project focuses on teaching youth skills for self-regulation, including social awareness. The activities the youth are involved in are based on The Zones of Regulation and other, highly regarded, curriculum.

Amanda Baker, the Coordinator of Self-Regulation project, is an experienced and skilled Occupational Therapist. She, in collaboration with CLV, has adapted and developed this project for CLV Youth Services. Skilled facilitators lead the youth through a series of engaging and fun activities to help them learn new skills in self-awareness, understanding emotions (their own and other’s) and self-regulation.

Parents and guardian gain knowledge about the Zones of Regulation and self-regulation strategies through an outreach event. Each of the youth will get a binder with materials and resources.

CLV is grateful to Variety – The Children’s Charity for their grant that has enabled us to adapt, develop and offer the “I Know Me Best” project.
