We envision a world where all young people are able to shape their future the way they see it. A world in which they are able to make healthy sexual choices and develop healthy relationships. That is what Dance4Life stands for. Dance4Life is part of Rutgers from January 2021. Together with Rutgers, we work on our goals to make more impact on the health of young people worldwide.
Change starts from within
Dance4Life beliefs the impact can be tremendous and with long lasting impact. That is why we invest in youth by specializing in youth empowerment. We believe deeply that real change always starts from within. It starts when every individual discovers their inner power. Their own potential. That is the real game changer.
“Where do I want to be in 5 years?”
“Am I ready to have sex?”
“Do I want to start a family?”
“What relationships are important to me?”
...a world where all young adults make informed decisions about healthy and safe sex.
...them establishing equal and stable relationships because they have relatable examples of how to achieve one.
... young women getting pregnant only when they are ready to have start a family.
...the social and economic progress if we channel the collective youth energy to its fullest.
We see self-confidence as the most crucial driver for change in order to make our vision a reality. Because confident young people will be able to articulate what they need to others. To their peers, parents, teachers and mentors: their circle of influence. Unlock this and young people everywhere will become role models. Shining examples inspiring others to follow.
Our innovative approach to comprehensive sexuality education empowers young boys and girls to take personal leadership over their sexual lives. We harness youth culture like music and dance to create awareness and offer young people skills to build self-esteem and autonomy. To make them courageous.
