You will see our work in a number of forms within primary schools, all supporting the KS1&2 Collective Worship requirements and RE curriculum. Our vibrant self-penned theatre-style assemblies prove to be incredibly popular with children and staff alike; delivering positive messages based on biblical teachings. Our RE lessons present faith in an accessible and engaging way.
We are passionate about raising a young person’s self-esteem and empowering them with effective knowledge in order that they make wise and healthy relationship choices. We want to eliminate potentially destructive behaviours by delivering unique self-esteem and relationship education, allowing teens to identify their view point and boundaries within a positive environment.
We have been delivering one to one mentoring for a number of years now, seeing really encouraging results with many of those we work with. As a result of this mentoring, the young people are now engaging much more with their schooling, becoming more open, responsive and well-rounded, having positive peer relationships and developing a healthy self-esteem.
Two of our team are trained in Therapeutic Play (an excellent facilitator for working with young children), with one starting a diploma in April 2016. This type of creative interaction allows a child to work through current challenges or past traumas. We continue to see transformational results, with parents and teachers reporting increased peer engagement and improvements in behaviour.
Our work with local homeless young people, including young parents, is incredibly important to us. Many of those we work with have experienced heart breaking challenges. We believe that everyone should have every opportunity to reach their potential and we develop sessions designed to meet their support needs through raising their self-esteem, whilst also having great fun.
Our collaborative project with Tunbridge Wells Youth For Christ; by combining our resources and skills in this area we are more able to meet the needs of a larger proportion of young people. Connect recruits, trains and manages volunteer secondary school mentors. The overall aim is to listen, support, encourage and empower the many young people we work with.
