Big light of Mine
The Mission - What do we do?
Here are the 5 pillars of Big Light of Mine Life Skills programme that we focus on cultivating in our young professionals as we mentor through media:
We provoke and answer young people’s questions about, wait for it…life!
We want young people to make better decisions about their lives by asking the right questions and finding the right answers. We want to help them to be able to make informed decisions about their life and their future.
We develop creative ways to share information on life skills.
Life is such a broad topic – so much to learn, so much to know. Sometimes serious, sometimes funny or educational but ALWAYS relevant!
We like to challenge opinions and get young people’s thinking caps on.
We like to find out what young people think and why. We want young people to bring their ideas and opinions to the forefront and be confident that they add value.
We believe that young people receive more from interactive and informal working styles.
It’s important that we develop and practice good communication skills and feel comfortable socialising with one another on different levels. I believe we can learn lots about the world that we live in from each other. Creating forums for young people to speak where we can listen and facilitate, aids their positive growth. We use interactive formats such as workshops, roundtable discussions, role play and debates (to name a few!) to encourage this.
With understanding comes confidence and empowerment.
We want young people to take action, responsibility and ownership over their thoughts, opinions and future. Lot’s of small changes now can help young professionals to prepare for a life time of success.
