Around the world, outdooractivities like surfing are changing the lives of hundreds of at-risk youth.
"W4C work in communities affected by violence, poverty and conflict, where mental health services are often stigmatized and under-resourced."
Waves for Change is an award winning Surf Therapy Programme led by surfers and mental health professionals operating in some of the most violent and unstable communities. They help young people exposed to repeat trauma and adversity, who lack supportive adults, feel negatively about themselves, and adopt challenging behavioral patterns, reducing their life chances. Through connections to safe spaces, caring mentors, and a 12-month weekly Surf Therapy curriculum, W4C give children skills to cope with stress, regulate behaviour, build healing relationships, and make positive life choices.
