Our groundbreaking wellness program, RADical Health, empowers and equips young adults with tools to stay well and stay resilient.
Youth are particularly vulnerable during times of transition. During these times, young adults require support to develop their mental, physical and emotional health skills. This need is particularly pressing due to elevated anxiety, stress and depression.
In fall 2020, RADical Hope partnered with New York University (NYU) to develop RADical Health, a skill-based wellness experience that equips young adults to cope before they reach a crisis point. The four-week program is an on-ramp for participants to engage with their organization with access to the activities, clubs and resources promoted at every organization. With the support of peer leaders or faculty guides, participants explore each week’s themes:
- How Do I Connect? Strengthening Emotional Intelligence
- What Matters To Me? Principles & Priorities
- Why Am I Stressed? Building Resilience
- Where Do I Go From Here? And How Do I Get There?
RADical Hope funds every element of the program for all organizations. We are scaling our partnerships across the country, with the goal of reaching one million participants in the next two years.
In collaboration with New York University (NYU) and the Wasserman Career Center, RADical Health’s “Career Accelerator” certification program was recognized with the 2022 Career Services Excellence Award from NACE, the National Association of Colleges and Employers.
RADical Hope encourages each school partner to build on RADical Health programming with its own campus resources and activities. NYU incorporated “career readiness skills” into the RADical Health first year experience which resulted in a “Career Accelerator” certificate for students. Over 350 students completed career assignments each week and earned a certificate upon completion of the course. When surveyed, 90% of student participants agreed that the activities made them think about their career development or path beyond NYU.
NACE connects over 13,700 career services and university relations and recruiting professionals, as well as the business solution providers that serve the community. The NACE Awards honor members’ outstanding achievements in the career services and HR/staffing professions. We are incredibly proud to be acknowledged for our collaboration with NYU and look forward to launching RADical Health at more than 25 schools this fall.
