About Communication Heroes

Communication Heroes is a series of 15 days of social collaborative NLP-based modules designed to bring out the communication potential of every child. Why communication? Because communication is the basis of every interaction and human connection. The skills discovered are meant to trigger and light up new networks of the brain.

Who are the heroes? This program is designed for two age groups, young communication heroes from ages 10 to 14 and communication heroes ages 15 to 18.

The program explores the variety of communication skills using our senses and our greatest instrument, our body. Each week will feature a new theme with practical tactical hands-on activities embedded with self-management and self-leadership lessons because communication comes from inside out.

The program will run for 2.5 hours/day, five days a week for three weeks.
