Youth Animation Program
DB-ARK Youth Animation Team reaches out to youth in schools, colleges, parishes and in the open settings with programs developed along the “Whole Person Paradigm”. Our research department has identified the deficiencies in the present day educational programs and has developed programs to ensure that a more balanced person is the product of the system. The programs focus on the enhancement of the Self Esteem, Discovery of the Talents and Abilities in the person, finding the Meaning in one’s life, preparing for a life of Love, Social Awareness and Social Involvement.
