The UK based Be You Program, founded in 2012, has set itself the high aim of “transforming the lives and prospects of young people who struggle to fulfil their potential within the school system by teaching them valuable life skills and techniques.”
On the first day of their pilot project, co-founders Kitty de la Beche and Ricky Reemer told the students of the West Sussex Alternative Provision College, “Our goal is that each of you recognize the precious nature of who you really are and the immense opportunity that is your life. And that you develop a passion and confidence to go for what you want and to be who you are.”
As part of the program, students and teachers learned the Transcendental Meditation technique.
