Through interactive parent-child activities, parents learn strategies to help their child put out Friendship Fires™, how to put a voice to their feelings, and the best ways to support their child through unhealthy friendships. They also get an overview of URSTRONG’s core principles and whole-school friendship strategy. This workshop gives kids, parents, and teachers a common “language” for talking about friendships, helping them connect and open up those lines of communication.
Improving the social climate in schools around the world
URSTRONG is all about empowering kids with friendship skills while providing the adults in their lives, both parents and teachers, with a common language to support them. Kids learn what’s normal in a friendship, the difference between healthy and unhealthy friendships and how to stand up for themselves with kid-friendly concepts.
What parents and educators are sharing with us
I felt like you were teaching my child all the things I wanted to teach them about how to be a good friend, but didn’t know how.
URSTRONG’s focus on developing friendship skills and building the resilience of students is EXACTLY what schools need!
Jamie Wahab, Principal
St Christopher’s Catholic Primary School
You’ve given us the tools to help identify what is healthy and what is not and how relationships change and that’s ok.
URSTRONG has enriched and complimented our school values with great language, practices and perspective.
Adrian Torrese, Assistant Principal
Our Lady of the Cape Primary School
The skills we learned are still helping us communicate about friendships over a year later. They will help guide us both in making friendships for the rest of our lives.
URSTONG has not only empowered our students with the life skills to foster healthy relationships, it has also empowered our teachers and parents.
