Cooperate to Lead

Cooperation, Teamwork and Leadership Skills and Their Impact On Children's Emotional Wellbeing

John Donne said it best: “No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent.” Development of children's cooperation skills result in reduced conflicts (peer pressure, bullying) and improved social relationship, as well as good preparation for leadership. Through realistic interactive social problem solving, curaFUN programs train youth to collaborate, seek cooperation from others, think flexibly and positively and negotiate.
