My New School Adventure and the Secondary School Survival Kit are intended to equip students who will start Years 7 and 9 next September with the skills needed to be able to navigate these transitions successfully. The youth workers presenting these sessions make use of icebreakers, games, online apps and discussions to delve into a different topic every session. To ensure maximum reach, Aġenzija Żgħażagħ is offering these courses in small groups at staggered times and in different tracks to ensure that all those who wanted to enrol in these transition programmes would be able to find a convenient slot. In all, 9 youth workers are involved in the delivery of these sessions.
As the students who opted to sit for the twice weekly sessions finish their courses this week, the youth workers delivering these sessions have been reflecting on this new mode of interacting with young people this summer:

As the Covid-19 situation continues to loom ahead uncertainly, Aġenzija Żgħażagħ will continue to offer support to young people if and as needed.
