INFORMATION FOR PARENTS

Concrete benefits for your child

Young people gain confidence and self-confidence. They discover that they can be themselves while being respected. They dare to speak in front of a group and leave behind the fear of judgment (their own and that of others). They discover that they can take initiatives and this often comes to fruition within the family, at school or high school, at university and at work. They develop a feeling of belonging to a place that is their own and they are proud to have this space.
