URSTRONG and Eastland share a strong, mutual interest in empowering youth and school communities while positively influencing all aspects of their lives via the development of healthy friendships.
URSTRONG empowers kids with friendship skills while providing parents and teachers with a common language to support them. Youth gain the tools they need to foster friendships that are transparent, supportive, and rooted in integrity.
A whole-community strategy, URSTRONG utilises the Friendology 101 curriculum, the Educator and Parent Resource Centres, and a variety of workshops and teacher training sessions. Using practical, step-by-step instruction, students learn how to differentiate and manage conflict (Friendship Fires™ vs Mean-on-Purpose) with kindness and respect.
The Friendship Journal
The Friendship Journal has been partially subsidised by Eastland as a commitment to supporting the youth of Maroondah and leadership in creating a healthy and connected community.
This annual planner for schools is designed to promote mental health + wellbeing through friendship skills. With reflection questions, activities, and monthly themes, the Friendship Journal ties URSTRONG’s whole-school friendship strategy together – connecting home + school on a daily basis.
