What is ZaLife?

ZaLife is a project initiated by Jernej Picelj. In 2017, under the wing of the 'Mavrični bojevniki', (Rainbow warriors), Jernej took over the leadership of the workshop 'If you don't know, ask'. This workshop is now a regular part of the Rainbow Warriors' program, as well as the ZaLife project. Based on the workshop, Jernej and his team have developed other services and programs that are part of the ZaLife project. The project's purpose is to support and educate teenagers for everyday life. Additionally, the project aims to help adults improve their relationship with teenagers. We collaborate with schools, individuals (teenagers), and their parents. We also engage with companies, where we support working parents in improving their relationship with teenagers at home.

Our mission

All teenagers are heard, understood, and appreciated for who they truly are.

ZaLife.eu - Delavnica Če Ne Veš, Vprašaj / Workshop If You Don't Know, Ask

WORKSHOP

If you don't know, ask

The workshop is conducted among primary and secondary school students and represents an innovative version of a "mobile counseling center on the field." It takes place directly in the classroom, and its advantage is complete anonymity, enabling students to have honest and open conversations about topics they might not otherwise discuss. The workshop's goal is not to wait for young people to seek support themselves, but for our mentors to reach out to them first, in collaboration with the school.

MENTORSHIP

Legend for life

One of the biggest challenges for parents during adolescence is understanding and connecting with their child. Despite parents' strong desire to support and connect with them, they often don't know how to approach it. This is where we step in, supporting you and your teenagers. Through years of working with teenagers, we've discovered that sometimes they need to talk to someone who isn't directly involved in their lives. The aim of mentorship is to ensure that teenagers are heard and supported in what matters to them.

LECTURE FOR ADULTS

Teenagers 11.0.

Teenagers 11.0. is an interactive lecture for adults, where participants are invited to engage in dialogue and collaboration. The purpose of the lecture is to provide adults with insights gained from working with teenagers, showing who teenagers truly are and what matters to them. This often conflicts with society's standard view of teenagers. Participants of the Teenagers 11.0. lecture gain a better understanding of teenagers, as well as knowledge and tools to support them in the everyday challenges of life with teenagers.

PROGRAM

Za life!

The 'ZA LIFE!' program is the ultimate upgrade of the 'If you don't know, ask' workshop. It is tailored to each class based on the questions asked by students in the initial 'If you don't know, ask' workshop. The program aims to deepen conversations about the topics from the workshop and to teach teenagers responsibility, respectful communication, and leadership.

Testimonials

I felt heard and like finally an adult understood me, and we could ask a lot of things without being judged.

Teenager

I started thinking more realistically. I saw that I'm not alone with this problem!

Teenager

Because I gained focus and a vision of what kind of person I want to be and what I want to do in life and how. Many solutions for life and it gave me knowledge on how to achieve my goal.

Teenager

The workshop impresses by allowing students to ask anything that interests them growing up, things they can't ask at home or have a hard time discussing with older people.

Principal

Well-executed lecture with real-life examples and provided solutions.

Parent

The lecture answered multiple questions for me. I became aware that my children are truly copies of my husband and me.
