TED ed resource: peer-learning to strengthen community resilience

This TED Ed resource is a quick introduction to the filmed case studies sharing stories of resilience among at-risk youth. The New Zealand singer Kimbra is the Ambassador for this UNESCO project and introduces the material. She also shares her own lessons in resilience building speaking directly to her peers.

The self-learning programme collates interviews of youth who have overcome challenging and/or traumatic experiences and share with peers how they built their ability to bounce back from adversity. The project uses proven oral storytelling methodologies to describe the significant lessons learned by these role models.
