All About Us

The model

mentoring_chatSea Change provides mentoring and guidance with two goals: 1) Help young adults apply their international background to academic, professional and personal success and 2) to help young adults develop resilience and life skills to help them navigate transitions to university and their passport country.

The technology

The protégés

group-people-blue

Our protégés are young adults in high school or university. All our protégés spent more than one year living outside of their parents’ native countries. While our main focus is young people between the ages of 17 to 20, we can work with young people as young as 14, using a modified curriculum. Proteges do not have to currently enrolled in school.

 

Our Mentors

We have a talented team of mentors selected for their own experience growing up abroad and the skillset to guide young adults in making good decisions. They are professionals that work in a variety of fields including the arts, business, technology and science.

    Are you a Third Culture or Global Nomad young adult? Or are you a mentor, parent, counselor or educator that cares for them? Join us as we explore mindfulness with the experts. You will have the opportunity to practice mindfulness techniques and to ask questions along the way.

    What is Mindfulness? Mindfulness is a method of paying attention to the present moment using mind-body awareness techniques such as meditation, breathing and movement. It helps people respond to life’s challenges more effectively and without judgment rather than reacting to situations automatically. 

    We are excited to have international psychologists as our guest presenters:

    Kate Berger, MSc is a Child and Adolescent Psychologist and certified mindfulness instructor located in The Netherlands. She is the founder of The Expat Kids Club, a private practice for children living in a non-native environment, and works in collaboration with Mindfulness International. 

    Debby Poort, B.A. Psychology  is a registered integrative therapist and certified mindfulness instructor located in The Netherlands. She is the founder of Yellow Wood Integrative Psychotherapy Practice, which supports expatriates worldwide. Debby is also founder of Mindfulness International, which brings mindfulness to international schools, expatriate children and adults.
