STORIES OF YOUNG PEOPLE
TANDANA CEO “This program is truly making a difference!”
TANDANA MANAGER “The program has demonstrated to our young people a DIFFERENT WAY in which to VIEW THEMSELVES, their COMMUNITY and the WORLD around them.”
“The program allows young people to EXPLORE their FEELINGS and ACTIONS in a safe and caring environment, and helps to ensure that they have the CONFIDENCE TO EXPLORE these feelings.”
“Tandana and its young people are VERY FORTUNATE to have this program as AN INTERGRAL PART OF OUR APPROACH TO RECOVERY for young people experiencing drug and alcohol dependency issues.”
“The program HELPS us TO PROVIDE BALANCE for our young people, and the WATCH program’s philosophies e.g. watch your words, are carried throughout the entire Tandana program.”
TANDANA YOUTH WORKERS “Having participated in the WATCH program myself, it is quite inspiring and empowering to see how far young people come from their first session right up until the end of the twelve week program.”
“The program of meditation, positive thoughts, love, discussions, week after week regarding topics of “WATCH” has supported and encouraged the young people in their lives – NOTICEABLY.”
“The program continues to be a most IMPORTANT and WORTHWHILE group session with the young people at Tandana.”
“It has taught them many things to BELIEVE IN THEMSELVES, STAY STRONG and to REALIZE that the POWER is INSIDE them TO CHANGE and that they WILL be able to ACHIEVE their DREAMS and GOALS.”
“I cannot imagine Tandana without this program.”
