Incorporating The WhyTry Approach

Our training focuses on helping staff build skills that are key to pupil engagement and following our proven model of teaching resilience to all pupils.

See what educators have to say about WhyTry.
For over 20 years, WhyTry has inspired students to discover freedom, opportunity, and self-respect. Here’s what they say about our pupil wellness and resilience programmes.
“We implemented this program through a small group with 20 girls. To select these 20 girls, we identified them as leaders in our building who were not leading in the most positive ways. I have to say, the hands-on activities were perfect in portraying the message, and we had so many great discussions as a result. In fact, we saw a measurable change with our group. Our students made much better decisions going forward. These changes occurred as a result of the group and the WhyTry materials.”
Katelynn FlynnYouth Service Center Coordinator, Scott County High School
“WhyTry gives them the vocabulary that my class last year lacked because the program is so strong with giving them the tools and the words to describe how they’re feeling.”
Kristie Brawley2nd-grade teacher, Willow Creek Elementary School
“Very, very well done and organized, this program is incredibly complete and well thought out, masterfully scope and sequenced, it’s all here, totally visual and participatory. There is a very solid base to this “pyramid.” If presented to kids (with full fidelity) we will see them attain greater success.”
