LARK is an online confidence building and life skills development program for adolescents and children on the brink on adulthood. The program is designed to help children build their resilience to meet challenges they face as they grow out of childhood and into maturity.

Age appropriate themes are innovatively intertwined with public speaking, blogging, creative writing, story telling, debating, group discussions, the art of conversation, vocabulary building and so much more to promote the idea of building an articulate and confident young adult.

Features


Research indicates that children who feel good about themselves can fend off negative peer pressure and make better choices. Healthy friendships are very important to your child’s social development. Peer pressure begins and kids learn to cooperate in collaborative and team activities.

In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic has thrown many things out of gear, and continues to wreak havoc globally! Online learning during this time of social distancing is one such silver lining.

Is the silver lining that our kids don’t have to commute 1-3 hours every day to and from school and classes? Can we try and include the interactivity, the fun, the enthusiasm and excitement into learning programs, and use the hand we have been dealt wisely and effectively? And, how do we balance the stress of screen time – with quality learning?

We have hit upon this balance as we edited our classroom Leadership Communication program into LARK Online. We took into consideration what the parents expected and kids wanted – and designed a beautiful program packed with public speaking, confidence building, debating and creative writing skills – and added in a generous dose of FUN!

As our children mature and move towards adulthood, we begin realising that peers are very important in their social & emotional development. A growing sense of independence and confidence to solve problems and taking risks begins to emerge. They are tackling more responsibilities and routines and learning how to relate to peers, adjust to social rules, and evolve as independent thinking individuals as opposed to extensions of the adults in their life. With all of the physical, emotional and intellectual changes, at this age, they can also become discouraged, which may lead to being shy or reserved when faced with social interaction opportunities.

Research indicates that children who feel good about themselves can fend off negative peer pressure and make better choices. Healthy friendships are very important to your child’s social development. Peer pressure begins and kids learn to cooperate in collaborative and team activities. 

Twice a week, these children are engaged in award winning activities, vocabulary enhancing, communicating effectively through presentations, story writing, random acts of kindness, communication games and interactive activities – all online – thus maintaining the norms of physical distancing while enhancing social connection.
