The Teacher Development program aims to train a wider range of teachers and community workers to facilitate the development of Life Skills amongst young people in their own schools and regions. Teachers, facilitators, community workers,youth workers and educators are trained to deepen impact to unlock potential of young people. The program uses a life skills approach to nurture empathy, expand their creativity, develop listening and validation skills and the ability to share with authenticity while also learning facilitation skills. The model has been adapted from the Creative Community Model developed by Partners for Youth Empowerment (PYE).Through the Teacher Development Program teachers across schools are encouraged to transform the classroom into a creative community. Teachers learn to create engaging learning environments where young people can rise to the challenges they face.

What began as 120 teachers across 15 schools in 2012 has today scaled up to 2264 teachers being trained from over 60 schools. Forging new partnerships, entering new cities and towns and working in partnership with government schools are some of the scale up and replication strategies tbe program has adapted for growth.
