Accelerate Programme

Inspire and Achieve Accelerate programme Summer 2014 During the summer The Inspire and Achieve Foundation ran a six week young people’s programme to encourage young people to work towards a positive future by providing structured activities. Twelve young people started the programme and each individual embarked on a personal journey. The majority of the young people had never been employed or been involved with any further education courses. The young people completed sessions including confidence building, personal development, dealing with problems in daily life, managing social relationships and working as a team. Activities were embedded into the programme to encourage young people to try new things and become active; they included multi- sports, ice skating, Go Ape and outdoor activities at Kings mill Reservoir. Quotes from the young people included, “I’m not lazy anymore and I have an apprenticeship” “I’m happy that I started and I now have the confidence to do new things” “I’m up for doing more active things and I’m not bored anymore”
