A UNIQUE APPROACH
ADN Kids! Is an association that meets with children in schools, sports clubs and activity centres, to help raise awareness about the importance of negotiation and conflict resolution.
Interactive & fun
ADN Kids teaches the basics of negotiation and related psycho-social skills with fun and interactive workshops: active listening, empathy, assertiveness…
The association has been active since 2017 in training thousands of children in the fight against bullying at school with a structured and recognised approach.
A LASTING AND COMMITTED TEAM
Since the very first hours of ADN Kids existence, our teams have been involved daily to develop our work with youth.
The association is organised around different areas of expertise.

ADN Kids values
We are convinced that there is a bit of humanity in all of us and it is by talking about what all humans have in common that we will be able to understand each other in difficult times: empathy, active listening, emotions, verbalisation, questioning.
Negotiation requires courage: going to meet disagreement, facing up to uncomfortable situations, being able to listen to what a person you do not agree with has to say. It also requires constantly questioning yourself and evolving.
It is by working together that we achieve great things. Children, like adults, must learnt to play together, communicate, express themselves, and be the actor in their personal and collective trajectories.
If we consider that we need to respect and accept the other fully for everything they are than we also need to be demanding in what we require from children: surpass themselves, having to deal with difficult moments to grow and spread their wings.
Negotiation is based on human relations and the human element. This requires a great deal of humility because humans are unpredictable, ambivalent and there are never any exact right answers. It is imperative we remain humble when faced with a situation, because even though we may think we understand or have control, we can sometimes be wrong.
The ADN Kids workshops
Our philosophy: ADN Kids workshops are 100% free and will always remain so regardless of where they are.
The workshops are organised with groups of approximately 15 children (or half-classes). The 3 hour workshop will take place in the classroom and are based on practical cases and roleplaying that has been adapted for children.
Major events in our history
Since 2016, ADN Kids has been revolving around the association’s major events, the life of the organisation and around kids!
The National Meetings
Each year the association gets together for an annual reunion to meet the new volunteers, help our organisation grow and get new things set up for the coming year…
