About Project

'Face It' is Khulisa's FREE Social and Emotional skills training programme for young people at risk of exclusion.

The programme is run within secondary schools.

We provide specialist emotional and social skills training for young people who are at risk of being excluded from school, and are at risk of becoming involved in youth violence and crime.

We offer targeted and long term support to help children develop the social and emotional skills (including consequential thinking, coping strategies for anxiety and emotional regulation), the emotional resilience and self-confidence they need to make more positive choices in their lives.

We will support 180 young people over three years by partnering with up to 15 schools with high levels of exclusions and challenges with disruptive behaviours.

Our project is proven to empower young people to understand and address the root causes of their violent behaviours. As such, the short term outcomes are related to a young person's ability to identify, understand and respond more positively to their emotions.
Having developed and practised using these new life-long skills, we will see young people feeling more confident, more motivated and more able to make more positive choices in their lives. Ultimately, we hope to see them engaging in positive activities, for example engaging more fully in their education, taking on roles of responsibility or volunteering in the community, and preparing for a successful transition into adult life. Conversely, through the programme we hope to successfully divert young people away from crime and becoming involved in youth violence.

I realise now that people do want to listen to what I say, and that I can make friends

The programme was fun, creative and interesting. I feel its helped me to think smarter and improved my communication

The main thing I learnt was to be more comfortable around people, the more I was comfortable, the more people liked me. People liked me for who I am instead of me pretending to be someone

“Since the programme I think I have changed a lot. I’m calm and I know how to deal with things properly. There’s other options. I can just sit back”. - Harrow High
