14 September 2014
On 13 September we had the pleasure to celebrate the success of our first cohort of young people from Hackney Quest and Downside Fisher in completing the Lions Quest Skills for Adolescence programme.
During the celebration event, which took place at our office at Pitfield Street, the young people, their friends and family had the chance to speak about their experience on the course which saw them complete 102 sessions on a variety of topics around personal and social development. Many of the participants spoke about how the programme increased their confidence and their ability to communicate with their peers and their families.
If you are interested in learning more about the programme and think there is a group of young people in your youth organisation who would benefit of taking part in the programme, please get in touch with Esther at Esther.Thompson@londonyouth.org.uk.
This programme, which has been run in over 70 countries world-wide, has been brought to the UK by Ambition through the Big Lottery Fund’s Realising Ambition scheme and is being implemented in youth clubs for the first time ever. You can read more about the programme and the event on Ambition’s website too.
