to build self-esteem and a mature, responsible attitude to life.
Is your youth managing composedly and responsibly?
Or is your youth lost in that transition between the freedom of childhood and the responsible accountability of adulthood?
What makes us unique
We see youth as a transitional stage, but one they can be locked in if we do not show them how to get out. They function with the recklessness of youth but with the tools and freedom of the adult. What they did as the child was cute and excusable as the child, but when they express these acts with the authority and independence of the adult, it can become dangerous.
When they cling to the irresponsibility of childhood but with the help of soft drugs, alcohol, and progressively harder drugs, sexual experimentation, social networking, or partying, they not only stay in a stagnant position, but they also become unproductive, unambitious and lost.
When they do things that might have been cute for a child, they can be seen as criminal and steered down a path of self-destruction.
Being angry or defiant to the parent may be tolerable though not condoned, but doing it to less forgiving people can incite hostility and possible criminal charges.
When they get overwhelmed, find they do not fit in with peers, or feel lost and alone, they may succumb emotional instability that may become entrenched and irreversible. Yet, we cannot and should not simply give up on them.
We need to help our youth, not just expect them to help themselves because they have reached the chronological age of adulthood. (“Act your age” is actually a depleting admonition.) We need to realize that the rapidity of change in their world makes even the best prepared youth unsure or overwhelmed. Our unique method is to discover where they may be afraid or lacking and show them how to fill that hole, show them that their problem is not an innate deficit but a lack relative to the exorbitant demands of today’s world. We make them feel normal and then show them how to respect, examine, and understand their world.
We’ve helped so many
get their lives back!
“ I learned a lot and gained a new sense of identity. Today I uphold continuous learning and growth as a soul to self –discovery. Despite the fact that I am still dealing with legal issues I keep myself intact and deal with these challenges in strong way. Thanks to Prometheum Institute for the guidance in my journey.”
“I got the wakeup call that I needed to get me to change the focus and priorities in my life. The program helped me develop a deeper interest in certain activities. I read several books during the program which helped the types of qualities needed to lead a balanced and meaningful life.”
“I have learned that life is not perfect and we all make mistakes. Now I know that I can use my mistakes as lessons in life, learned from them and move forward. I accept that life is a chaos, and the only thing I can change is my view on life and I choose how I manage myself."
” I wanted to be a good man, I just did not know how. In this program I realized that I never had a chance to grow up and become a mature person. I needed to take responsibility for my life, expand myself and go through some life challenges that I always avoided. Thanks for the guidance and the feedback. Your firm and gentle encouragement made a difference in my life. “
“ I did not see life before the way I see now because I did not understand lots of things about me. The most beneficial change is that I now have a methodology for gaining perspective and assessing and addressing situations. This enables a more objective respond to events.”
"At Prometheum Institute, I learned to see my life and the purpose of life differently. Now I am facing life challenges in a positive way. They never offered a solution to my problem, but instead, helped me develop the tools/skills to recognize and work though it “
”I used drugs that led me to violence, depression and finally crimes and, of course, criminal charges. Referred by my lawyer, Prometheum Institute taught me that in my comfortable life, sheltered from the real world, I was trapped in adolescence. They woke me to my responsibility to grow up and deal with the chaos that is our world. I am 23 now and living life for the first time, no drugs, no depression, no violence. I like it!"
“I was a young professional in my 20’s, depressed and living an unhealthy lifestyle, partying and using marijuana on a daily basis. I was very reluctant to pursue help. However, with the help of Prometheum Institute, and I truly changed my life. Through their innovative techniques I learned to empower myself to explore and extend my life. Thank you.”
”Thank you for waking me up to living, instead of hiding and wasting time in the basement. I have learned and I am continuing to learn the art of being proactive and not reactive in every possible situation I have to deal with, whether it is good or bad. I now have and I will continue to develop stronger self-esteem, and greater mind and a healthier soul. Now I know that it is up to me to become a mature person. I have the tools, and want to use them. “
”I was in high school and I felt totally insecure about what people think of me…..I had my sunglasses on all the time. I started hating myself for who I am and how I feel inside. At Prometheum Institute I learned to see myself realistically, understand the frustration and anger in me. I learned to see life as a journey and challenges as invitations to grow me, not to blame self or others for their presence.”
Learn about our tested & trusted
We see behaviour as the manifestation of how you feel inside. We see that inside feelings are driven by value systems. So when these are threatened, youth can be forced to use coping strategies or support systems that allow a feeling of liberation… for the moment.
We examine, and teach youth to examine and manage all three!
