Supporting Children and Youths through Life-giving Workshops

YWCA launched the YWCA Workz-on-Wheels (WoW) programme in 2016 to provide outreach to disadvantaged children and at-risk youths from age 5 to 17 by equipping them with essential life skills to manage their own cognitive and socio-emotional needs for life adjustments.

WoW works closely with community and institutional partners to tailor life-giving educational workshops and curricula that fit the target audience’s needs. These workshops are primarily focused on developing emotional
health and addressing the socioemotional needs of children and youths.

After each session, a feedback system and open communication channels help ensure the programme’s effectiveness and allow facilitators to update partners about each child and youth’s progress. Such a communication
process is also helpful in identifying alarming issues such as abuse or self-harm.
