Rescue A Young Life

Our programmes aim to give youth and young adults a start to a better understanding of their mental strengths and allowing them to identify their strengths to not fall victim to permanent mental illness and alcohol and drug abuse, which could lead to suicide. We can then create a much needed platform to assist youth to be better prepared to proceed mentally, confidently and academically in the social and diverse environment.
