We have been successful in applying to the Co-op Local Community Fund. We are now asking you to become a member so that you can choose to give 1% of what you spend on Co-op branded products and services to support the costs in residential trips for our young people.
The project will work with local disadvantaged young people aged 12-24 who will participate in residentials aimed at building team and leadership skills through various activities. Organised in partnership with young people, London Youth and Copenhagen Youth Project (CYP) they will also provide a platform for them to bond and grow whilst working towards leadership skills accreditation. They will experience success in a different environment, helping to build resilience, self esteem and self belief. By giving them the perception of a ‘fresh start’ this will encourage them into positive behaviour when they return home into their community. This project will also educate them on planning and organising their own trips. They will also learn skills on team work and budgeting.
