On Wednesday, May 5th at 3:30 p.m., the inauguration of the new program of the Universidad Peruana Unión (UPeU) called «Life Skills» took place.
This interdisciplinary activity aims to enhance socio-emotional and ethical skills in students from first to fifth year of high school in three Adventist institutions: the Union College of Ñaña, the Adventist College of Titicaca and the Adventist College José de San Martín, in Tarapoto.
In this first session, topics of utmost importance for young people and adolescents such as self-knowledge, self-esteem, emotional responsibility, emotion regulation, social skills and life projects were discussed.
These topics are focused on preparing adolescents to face conflicts in an assertive and altruistic way, in addition to discovering and enhancing their skills.
The program highlighted the participation of the Peruvian national soccer player Raul Fernandez, who gave a message of reflection to the students about how to enhance the skills of each one to meet their goals.
