Something that we are very passionate about at Big Change is emotional resilience in young people. Being a young person isn’t easy, and there is a lot of pressure in navigating new waters and meeting expectations as you grow.

A particularly challenging time in a young persons life is the transition from primary to secondary school, and thats where our partners at Franklin Scholars come in. They run a program that pairs year 9 students with year 7s to help ease the transition and build strong, lasting bonds between students.

They were recently interviewed on BBC radio 4 on a segment about this transition that is incredibly informative and highlights the need for programs like FS – check it out!
