Youthlife Residential Weekend: Growing Through Change

youthlife-logo Helping young people who have experienced bereavement and loss.

The next Residential Weekend is: Friday 22nd – Sunday 24th February 2013 at Kerdiffstown House, Naas, Co. Kildare.

Youthlife is the only youth led residential support programme for young people who have experienced bereavement and loss.

Research tells us that experiencing bereavement at a young age, becoming part of a different family unit, adjusting to social and economic changes cause children and young people pain and anxiety and can often impact negatively on their education and self esteem. The trauma is difficult for young people to deal with because their limited experience does not yet contain the tools to cope with such a situation.

Research also tells us that peer support is an effective tool in dealing with teenage difficulties. 

Our youth led bereavement programmes provide a friendly, non-judgmental and confidential space for young people to talk about the things that are worrying them

We are a non-profit organization made up of caring and understanding adults and young people who volunteer their time and experience to help others and themselves.
