Imparting critical life skills early on

Staff Reporter

CHENNAI: Adolescents in city schools will soon imbibe critical life skills to avert perils such as substance abuse, teenage pregnancies and other high-risk behaviour, and to adopt healthy living practices.

In an advocacy programme on adolescent education, nearly 60 teachers from schools affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) were trained to impart adolescent education to their school students.

The four-day workshop, which concluded here on Saturday, was a part of the National Adolescent Education Programme, which is an initiative of the Union Ministry of Human Resources Development, to address the increase in high risk behaviour among youth.

The United Nations Population Fund, the National Council of Educational Research and Training and the CBSE are the partnering agencies in the initiative.
