What is a Trust Journal and How Do They Make a Difference?
A Trust Journal is a physical, confidential journal that is meant to be shared between a youth and an adult. Beginning with a certificate of trust that must be signed by both parties, Trust Journals give youth a safe space to share what's on their mind. Trust Journals act as a bridge to resolve any issue or problem together. With pressures of social media, unrealistic body images, online bullying, and child suicide rates soaring, today's youth are grappling with hard issues that have no easy answers.
Through journaling, they can tackle these issues and find a voice when they might not have one in their day-to-day life. With good communication skills, a youth will take better control of situations and be more apt to experience healthier relationships as an adult. We believe that EVERY child should have a Trust Journal. It's never too early to build a trusting relationship with a child!
