• “Talking to KYDS about my fears during COVID-19 lock down
    really helped me get through a tough time.”

  • “Keeping everything to myself was just so hard and exhausting.
    Contacting KYDS was a really big turning point.”

  • “I had no idea what to do, or where to turn. Then a friend mentioned
    KYDS and I’m so glad they did. Their support changed everything.”

  • “If you want to speak with someone who listens, rather than
    judges, speak with KYDS. My only regret is I didn’t do it sooner.”

“D.R.I.V.E.”: How to build and maintain consistent motivation


What comes to mind when you hear the word “motivation”? Do you think of a diligent high-performer with a burning focus on the HSC? Someone sitting and waiting, hoping for a burst of inspiration before finally getting started on that history paper? Maybe an ice hockey coach pumping up a team with a half-time pep-talk?
