This Generation has its own distinctive characteristics shaped by their own and their parents’ experiences (e.g. the financial crisis of 2008):
There were some questions that arose consistently in our subsequent discussions: “Do those youngsters know how to live a good life (as defined by Aristotle) or are they overwhelmed by the fast pace of change that makes many of us live “on surface”? Did they take the deep dive to get a better grasp of who they are or are the hetero-defined by their social environment? In other words: “Are they self-aware of their strengths, virtues and purpose in life?”. That’s the why and how we developed “Eudaimonia”.
“Eudaimonia” is a journey you take, not just an end state. It’s a journey that will help youth to live the best kind of life. A journey that will help them live a life in their full human potential with virtue, excellence and meaning.
We aspire to assist youth in developing their Assets (i.e. skills, competencies) to achieve their desired outcomes. We vision youth to be able, through self-awareness, to use their resources in order to make or influence decisions about their lives and set goals that they will pursue through rigorous and systematic actions. We want youth to be the positive force for change in the years to come through meaningful engagement with their communities and environment.
Our mission is to help young people thrive in their lives through cultivating and educating them in order to develop their thinking, practices, abilities and confidence.
