Our Team

At Resilient Kids SA we believe that everyone’s story is important and that telling that story is a part of the process towards becoming resilient. Every story has multiple strands that weave together to make the whole.  To change the analogy, our lives are like rivers made up of and fed by many tributaries and streams, some of which are underground.  We believe this is true of both individuals and communities.  We believe that uncovering, owning, grieving, celebrating, reframing, and participating in our story is part of the process towards wholeness.  We also believe that it is a lifelong process.

Just as we encourage people to explore their own stories it is important for us, as an organisation and as individuals in the team, to discover and tell our own stories.  The Resilient Kids story can be found in the our history section.  Here you will find the team member's individual stories – or the parts, streams, threads that are relevant to the work.
