Yes You Can

Pathway back to excellence - For teens and young adults

A Lionheart Education and Yes We Can Youth Clinics initiative

The goal of Yes You Can is simple: to offer a long-term solution to a young person’s academic and professional journey by combining world-leading therapy with a holistic re-introduction to education.

Our Programme

An exceptional 22-week programme consisting of two distinct phases: During the first 10 weeks, teens and young adults age 13 to 25 are invited on a globally recognised rehabilitation programme at Yes We Can Youth Clinics (YWCYC) in the Netherlands; from boosting self-esteem to finding one’s motivation, this one-of-a kind intensive programme is expertly designed to reignite a young person’s purpose in life. Through proactive and intensive methods, YWCYC tackles a range of issues preventing young people to excel, all under the guidance of leading experts in their respective fields. For this reason, YWCYC is uniquely placed to offer the very highest support to the 13-25 age bracket.

The remaining 12 weeks are spent at Lions campus in central London, a safe and warm place in which the best environment has been created for each young person to work on a new and bright future. Combining a strong focus on academic goals with expert pastoral and mentor support from our AEGIS (Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students) accredited team of Guardians, Yes You Can creates an individualised programme for each student, guiding them back into full-time study. Together with the educational team, each student will be evaluated on their current attainment, future goals and personal needs. Lions Campus, a Lionheart Education’s initiative, is unique in offering the majority of subjects through one-to-one tuition, thus allowing a greatly accelerated rate of progress compared to most mainstream schools.

About Yes We Can Youth Clinics

Founded in 2010, Yes We Can Youth Clinics (YWCYC) has garnered a strong, worldwide reputation through the help it has delivered to thousands of young people getting their lives back on track. YWCYC, located in a 13th century castle on 17 acres of nature is certainly not your average clinic; offering the highest standards of care in a warm, positive, supportive environment, our team of 330+ highly-qualified psychiatrists, counsellors, therapists, and sports coaches are here to guide you and offer truly personal support.

‘I had a great time and I smile whenever I think back to it. Yes We Can taught me to express my limits, show emotions, be vulnerable, share, be myself and that I should do it for myself, not for others. This is the place where I stopped feeling so alone – all the people at the Clinic are there for you. I’m ready to start over!’

About Lions Campus

In the heart of London, Lions Campus, a Lionhearts Education’s initiative, combines therapy and education in one setting, to help each young person realise their potential and utilise their uniqueness for the benefit of themselves and their community. The residential facility and day care programme is led by an exceptional team with extensive experience in the sector. Lions Campus offers a bridge between the rehabilitation phase and the real world, so young people can continue to practice their coping strategies in a safe, warm and loving environment, without further loss in academic attainment.

Part 1 of the programme

At Yes We Can Youth Clinics in Hilvarenbeek, the Netherlands, we will target the obstacles that are preventing you from excelling. Our extensive programme consists of daily group sessions, multiple one-to-one sessions, psycho-education, various evidence-based therapies and a minimum of 3 hours of challenging sports and outdoor activities per day. By doing this seven days a week from 7 in the morning to 10.30 at night, structure, hope and good prospects return – step by step.

Parents/carers will receive help through purposefully designed family coaching and counselling programmes. This programme is much needed to restore trust, family values as well as respectful, loving communications.

Part 1 of the programme

The unique aspect of Yes We Can Youth Clinics is the combination of intensive therapy, sports and outdoor activities. The sports and outdoor activities have a therapeutic significance and the facilities at Yes We Can Youth Clinics fit our programme like a glove. The multitennis court, high ropes course, mountainbike track, survival track, gym and fishing pond make sure that the youngsters have enough options to exercise for which they can make use of all the in-house facilities. Next to that, the youngsters go on an activity outside of the clinic twice a week as well.

Part 2 of the programme

Lionheart Education has designed a personalised academic programme, allowing pupils to work towards internationally recognised qualifications such as GCSE, A-Levels and IB. At the Campus we work predominately on a one-to-one basis and we are uniquely placed to offer an exhaustive list of national and internationally accredited qualifications, facilitating reintegration into educational institutions at various academic levels - from secondary school to university. Yes You Can also has access to sporting facilities, allowing us to cater to a wide range of extra-curricular interests across all levels of proficiency.

Accomodation

During your time at Yes We Can Youth Clinics in the Netherlands you will stay with 20 other young people facing similar challenges and goals in a glorious 13th century castle set in 17 acres of rural surroundings. You will share a comfortable room with another fellow at YWCYC. During the 12 weeks at Lions Campus you will be staying in a secure, safe and warm private housing facility in central London. At both locations, supervision by a qualified team of experts available 24/7.

Guidance and care

Each family will be appointed a dedicated case manager during the first ten weeks in the Netherlands. Whilst in London, a personal Guardian/mentor will be looking after your academic and personal interests. Our AEGIS accredited Guardian team are on call 24/7 and have many years of combined experience in their field of expertise.

Participants will have access to an extensive set of bespoke aftercare facilities. After 10 weeks of intensive treatment, the main objective is to normalise life again. Many young people are done with therapy having left the clinic, although some still might need some extra attention, which we can provide through an enormous network of specialists. What they crave for is structure, safety and a warm environment in which they can implement the lessons learned during treatment. Staying in touch with a peer group having experienced similar journeys are major contributors in permanent recovery.

Next to the offering of a bespoke academic programme, we will also work on finding meaningful daytime activities and look ahead to the future in which they are ready to make the next steps in life outside Yes You Can.
