We don´t like to brag (blush, blush), but this is what people are saying about us.
UNIVERSITY OF NOVA (Lisboa, Portugal):
At Nova, Young Happy Minds run run our program for Masterstudents, equipping the students with skills to enhance their time at University, in dealing with peer pressure, strengthen relationships and strive for their goals and dreams. Our theory of change is that supporting students in building confidence, self esteem and resilience will close the attainment gap. Wellbeing and happiness will guide us to academic success, not the other way around.
MASTERCLASS MINERVA UNIVERSITY (Berlin):
100% of the students said there is a need to learn positive psychology, and that this course should be part of the general curriculum at Minerva and in Universities in general. In a post-survey the Masterclass scored between: ”I liked the course very much” and ”the course was excellent» and the students mentioned that the course gave practical and useful tips for each of the PERMA-model ́s areas of focus.
LAMPTON ACADEMY (Hounslow, West London):
At Lampton, Young Happy Minds run 10 week programmes for year 7-9, equipping them with skills to enhance their wellbeing, deal with life’s challenges, live a life of meaning and purpose, strengthen relationships and strive for their dreams. Some of the students qualify for Pupil Premium and are chosen to participate in the programme to increase their confidence, self esteem, resilience, sense of purpose and to set goals to close the gap the face from their circumstances. We have quantified the impact in the results of the programme by measuring students that went through the programme against a control group before and after the programmel, using a wellbeing tool developed by New Philantropy Capital.The analysis shows the uplift in positive improvements were directly attributable to the students who were part of the workshops.
YOUNG IN PRISON (Netherlands):
We have done a pilot of workshops together with Purpose+ and the organisation Young In Prison to teach techniques of Positive Psychology to young people in prisons in The Netherlands. This pilot had such great sucess that it has now scaled to prisons in South-Africa, Kenya, Malawi and Colombia.
PARKER FITZGERALD CONSULTANCY FIRM (UK):
We provided risk consutany firm, Parker Fitzgerald with 'something different" for their graudate scheme programme. It was a 4 hour workshop introduction on the science of hapiness and positive pyschology. The feedback from the graduates was that it was different to anything else that they had experienced and had helped them transform some of their relationships and join the dots on how they got to be where they are today and to set some goals for the year ahead.
