Weekly Update 17.08.20

We hope everyone’s had great weekends ?

In between quizzes and polls posted for young people to have some fun with, other highlights from our provision here last week included:

  • Road safety awareness – Charlotte created a great worksheet based on THINK! advice and guidelines, to enhance young people’s understandings of the importance in behaving cautiously and sensibly when on the roads, as well as encouraging thinking around the environmental friendliness of different forms of transport. 
  • Tutorials – Lisa was busy on the tutorials last week, demoing to young people how to speedily whip up a tasty fruit salad to help them cool down in the heat and saving an energetic fitness routine for one of the less so sunny days later on in the week!
  • 1:1 mentoring sessions – young people signed up to our 1:1 mentoring programme benefited from their next week of sessions with Justina, working through various topics and personal issues to help them come out the other side of the programme with more positive, confident mindsets for the future. 
  • 1:1 check-in’s – continuing to ensure young people know staff are there for them and being valuable for a number of much appreciated catch ups. Making themselves available was particularly important on Thursday, considering it being A-Level Results day so that any young people feeling anxious or down about their results were able to get in touch with Youth Workers for support. 
  • Challenges – Charlotte created another grid challenge take a look below), this time ‘about you’ themed. We’re looking forward to hearing how people get on over the next 30 days!
