Strengthening Family Resilience

Younger Heroes

The Younger Heroes (YH)  program focuses on nurturing family relationships and supports participants, including parents and children, who may have experienced prolonged periods away from their families due to their employment, such as military service.

The organisation’s dedication to providing a supportive environment for families facing the challenges of demanding occupations is reflected in its commitment to facilitating meaningful connections and fostering resilience.

Younger Heroes, an experience-based Australian charity, is dedicated to supporting parents with high-risk, high-stress, and time-intensive occupations in reconnecting with their children. The programs offered by Younger Heroes aim to equip parents and children with the necessary tools to share, communicate, and rediscover their connection, thereby strengthening bonds and laying a framework for building resilience among families facing risk and stress-intensive parental occupations. These nature-based programs provide parents and children with quality time together, free from distractions of the outside world.

Younger Heroes is a not-for-profit, registered charity with full DGR (deductible gift recipient) status.

I am not sure how you do it, but you managed to do and get out of people something I can't explain.  People have to experience this for themselves.

This program (TYH) is a great tool to connect back with each other. Its approach is utterly unique and for this they need to be congratulated.
