Abundant Life is an initiative of Reality Youth Project. Since its launch in 2009, we have been successfully running courses throughout the city and county of Leicestershire. Much of our work is in secondary and junior schools, with some additional partnerships with community organisations too.

The courses provide a creative way of delivering social and emotional aspects of learning (SEAL), and this fits in with Healthy Schools and every Child Matters agenda. The small group setting gives the young people a safe environment in which to express their feelings and opinions, learning from other group members.

Each course lasts for 6 weeks and sessions last between 45 mins to 1hr depending on lesson times. The courses are essentially designed to be run with secondary age children but we do offer versions suitable for years 5-6 in junior schools. The Mad course is designed for up to 6 students and the other courses for up to 8 students.

Each course will be led by two Reality Workers who have been fully trained on how to deliver the course and have undergone an enhanced DBS. Each student receives a pack to accompany the course.
