Popi referred Regan*, 15, to Youth Insearch, as she believed that Regan would benefit from engaging with supportive people in his community through the Youth Insearch program.

“He would love to engage with other young people who have similar life experiences. He is a very sweet young man and has a love of music.”

After his first weekend workshop, Popi contacted Youth Insearch with a positive account of how the program had impacted Regan.

“I have to say how wonderful it was to see Regan after his camp on Friday. He was so full of joy from the friendships and experiences he had at camp. He was playing the piano and telling me, with full range of emotions, suspense and insight what he learnt. It was so beautiful to watch, I can’t explain how heart-warming it was to see Regan like that. I’m so glad he took to the whole experience of Youth Insearch with so much gusto. 

Thank you and to all of the team and youth that welcomed him and shared so much love with him. I am so grateful.”

Our Community Coordinator, Kelly, has expressed that Regan was apprehensive about attending the program in the beginning, but since experiencing the weekend workshop is now actively referring his friends to come along too.

“The best thing about the weekend workshop was the people – both the participants and the hosts – and afterwards I felt an increase in my self-esteem and self-value, and also a feeling of immense care for my wellbeing.” – Regan
