Life Code for young people

Train to use My Matrix Re-Start with young people in your organization.

Re-start program

A renewing engagement with young people; connecting to life through conversations!

Introduction

Call us if you would like to discuss My Matrix Re-Start on 021 246 6286.

The My Matrix Re-Start Program is designed for use with young people to build self worth, and assist them to positively connect to everything in their world.

It is not a therapeutic intervention; rather it provides a framework for teachers, parents, mentors, coaches and counselors to engage young people in a fun, interactive, meaningful conversation about important life issues.

The program defines character qualities, creates a positive identity, and helps young people discover what lights them up!

The desired outcomes are for them to take appropriate responsibility, increase their empathy towards others and have a range of things they can do to enable them to function positively within their family and community.

Structure

The My Matrix Re-Start Program comprises 12 interactive sessions one on one with a mentor that can be completed in 30 minutes.

Each session relates to an area of life and focuses on a character quality needed to realise a positive outcome in that area.

At the end of each session the young person identifies a simple action in that area they can do to realise a more positive result than has previously been experienced.

The 12 My Matrix key life areas with their corresponding character qualities are as follows:

KEY LIFE AREA

Family
Friends/Belonging
Fun
Discovery
Creativity
Sexuality
Resources
Occupation

Nature
My Contribution

Underlying Principles

There are several different character qualities that relate to each area of life.  The particular character qualities that have been chosen for each life area within the program emphasise fundamental principles that young people need to adopt if they are going to have a positive and productive life. These include:

Self Awareness

Becoming consciously aware of who they are is the first step to become actors in their own lives instead of reactors to their environment.

Self Esteem

Awareness of all the fantastic qualities and resources they have creates confidence which impacts through all areas of life.

Empowerment

No matter what their individual circumstances, within their lives they still have the power to make choices.

Responsibility

However unfair they feel the deal is that life has dealt them and despite any disadvantages they may have, they are encouraged to take responsibility for themselves and their actions.

Giving/Empathy

Positively contributing into all the areas of their life, relationships and the community is the key to feeling good about themselves.

Broader World View

New perceptions and a broader vision create excitement about new things instead of fear and withdrawal.

My Matrix Workbook Guide

For each individual My Matrix Re-Start Program there are two workbooks.  One that the young person completes for each session and the other is the self explanatory program guide/ notebook for the facilitator. Each session has been designed to be able to be completed in 30 minutes. However the time frame can be extended if extra time is available and it is productive to do so.
