TeenBook runs a bilingual website with the most comprehensive, age-appropriate, engaging and science-based content on life skills and adolescence. The website uses several formats such as curiosity and advice columns, stories, personal accounts and blogs on current events to share knowledge on issues relevant to teenagers. The TeenBook websites in Hindi and English are our resource hubs, with the most comprehensive information on life skills and adolescence education. The TeenBook Hindi website is by far the biggest resource in Hindi available on these subjects.
We engage with parents on Facebook to help them understand issues of their teenage children and equip them to handle their issues better. For example, we help parents understand how to handle tough conversations like sex education. Our Instagram account is geared towards adolescents to engage with them on issues and topics that concern them and have some fun at the same time. On our Twitter account, we engage with communities on issues impacting adolescents.
With a comprehensive approach to life skills education, we design and offer need-based social and emotional learning to parents, educators, institutes and communities. Social and emotional learning (SEL) is the process through which children and adults acquire and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions. SEL and life skills are extremely important for a successful and happy adulthood.
Workshops for educators
The training and workshops will help educators/teachers (both pre-service and in-service), understand and implement communication and instructional designs within their lesson plans with the ultimate goal of nurturing adolescents’ social, emotional, and behavioural learning.
To integrate this learning with other subjects in education, TeenBook will offer a package of services to schools.
Workshops for parents
TeenBook has also devised workshops for parents to help them understand how best to support their children and create an environment of trust, respect and support. The training will also offer knowhow and practical skills that would enable parents to have difficult conversations with their children.
Workshops for adolescents
TeenBook will also offer specially designed training to adolescents and teenagers to help develop their competencies in all aspects of life skills learning. These workshops will be fun and engaging and help teens understand and work through on specific issues that they might be bothering them now or develop capacities to deal with pressure they might face in the future.
Counselling for adolescents
TeenBook offers a safe and trusted space to adolescents to ask questions, clear doubts and share their concerns or feelings without any judgment. TeenBook team would listen, share and respond to the queries using scientific information and resources on TeenBook.
