S.T.E.A.D.Y. – STrengthening and Enhancing the Ability of Decision-making in Youths – is a new programme dedicated to assisting youths to be more risk-adverse and decrease their likelihood in engaging in anti-social behaviours.
S.T.E.A.D.Y. aims to increase youths’ understanding of how decisions are made, through the following:
- To assist youths to identify their own influential factors which affect their own decision-making
- To strengthen youths’ self-efficacy in meeting their goals through appropriate decision-making and problem-solving skills
- To increase youths’ awareness of their current risky behaviours in relation to achieving their goals
The programme is running as pilot in selected schools.
