“Adolescent Friendly Schools in Tamil Nadu” is envisaged with the concept to create broader understanding of the physical, emotional and psychological growth of the children during the transitional stage from childhood to adulthood, empower them to overcome the challenges faced by the adolescent in the society at large and to bring out series of recommendations to draft ‘Adolescent Friendly Policy’ at the state level then to the national level.  The idea of promoting Adolescent Friendly Schools emerged from the impact of the child friendly schools programme implemented  in the last few years in Tamil Nadu.   

 

The emergence of Adolescent Friendly Schools will certainly ease out number of visible and invisible problems among the teenagers by themselves or by the support of the right guidance and further help the policy makers to draft a bill on adolescent friendly schools.
