Last week we got our new project, Back on Track, off to a great start by taking a group of young people to Trinity Church West Totton to make a three course meal as their first challenge.
Back on Track is a brand new two year training and wraparound support programme to help mostly 18-21 year olds (a few are older) from across the New Forest. Find out more about our Back on Track programme.
Our Back on Track project is currently working with six young people to provide accredited awards and certificates training (ASDAN Leadership Short Course) in an informal setting through a series of challenges and projects.
The young people on the programme have multiple and complex issues, so our main focus is on personal and social development and building self-esteem. We know that these young people are worth something, even if their own confidence is low, and we want to help them achieve their full potential.
Here’s what the group put together: Melon Balls, Breaded Mozzarella Balls, and Banoffee Pie! Next week the group is starting a bigger project – planning and carrying out the redecoration of a room at IYC.
