The second Jack Petchey Foundation Achievers Network got underway in October with 28 young people successful in their application to join this year’s programme. Over a frosty weekend at the beginning of November, the new members of the network attended a residential at London Youth’s Woodrow High House centre.
The weekend consisted of team building and self-evaluation activities, while it also provided an opportunity for the young people to meet their mentors who will be following their progress over the next eighteen months.
Project Leader Kevin Hayes said, “The residential is a fundamental part of the process, to encourage young people, across many ages and ethnic backgrounds to bond and understand what they can expect from the programme.”
This year’s Achiever’s Network has the benefit of being supported by graduates from last year’s programme, who continue to act as ambassadors for the Foundation.
The Jack Petchey Foundation Achiever’s Network empowers young people to participate in our work and inspire others. The participants will develop key leadership skills, gain valuable work experience, and represent the Foundation through events and projects.
