YES! Recommends: Project Happiness :: 7 Doors Project

Logo of Project Happiness
Teenagers are at a point in their lives where they are figuring out who they are, their relationships with people, and how they fit into this world. They’re not kids anymore, but they’re also not adults. They want to be in charge of their lives.

The 7 Doors Project explores the idea of your real and lasting happiness, regardless of the circumstances around you. Behind each of the seven doors is the opportunity to explore an aspect of your own path to happiness.

Project Happiness partners with schools, communities, and youth groups worldwide, encouraging people to find a path to happiness and to embrace our common humanity.
