Dale for 16-19 year olds

Generation Next

Train your courage muscle and build the foundation for a life of adventurous fun!

In this course, we lay the foundation for responsibility and awareness of the importance of shaping one’s own strategy for the future. We face ourselves, our strengths and limitations and set ourselves clear and realistic goals. We train ourselves to see challenges as opportunities to grow and reach further

During the high school years there are often big changes in our lives and it tests us in new ways, for example in communication with friends and family. It is also important to prioritize correctly so that we choose the best for us and manage to deal with stress and anxiety.
Through the training, we also improve our communication skills and become better at speaking in front of groups and giving presentations. By purposefully stepping out of our comfort zone, we boost our confidence and dare more! Self-image is strengthened with more positive experiences of ourselves and we become more powerful leaders in our environment.
