URSTRONG Friendship Journal

Eastland have partnered with URSTRONG to provide crucial resources to local Primary Schools in Maroondah for the benefit of the teachers, students and families.
Published 20 January

URSTRONG and Eastland share a strong, mutual interest in empowering youth and school communities while positively influencing all aspects of their lives via the development of healthy friendships.

URSTRONG empowers kids with friendship skills while providing parents and teachers with a common language to support them. Youth gain the tools they need to foster friendships that are transparent, supportive, and rooted in integrity. 

A whole-community strategy, URSTRONG utilises the Friendology 101 curriculum, the Educator and Parent Resource Centres, and a variety of workshops and teacher training sessions. Using practical, step-by-step instruction, students learn how to differentiate and manage conflict (Friendship Fires™ vs Mean-on-Purpose) with kindness and respect.
