#Achievers Launch at Pop Brixton


Today we successfully launched our #Achievers Programme at Pop Brixton. #Achievers is a Youth Leadership Programme created to produce encouraging ambitions for young people, through a series of personal and social development initiatives. #Achievers enhances each young person’s skills so they can be recognised and celebrated by society in a positive light. Additionally, #Achievers demonstrates more investment needed for future quality youth work which is vital and beneficial for improving different communities.

The #Achievers Youth Leader’s Programme aims to encourage young people to take part in a variety of positive youth initiatives that are designed to offer the following benefits to boost life skills, aspirations, and social action initiatives. This will be shown through:

  • Developing personal and social skills, including confidence, communication, leadership, and aspirational skills to prepare young people for education, training, and employment.
  • Offering mentoring support, and guidance throughout the programme to help ensure positive lifestyle choices.
  • Delivering accredited training programmes to enhance employability and entrepreneurship skills.
  • Delivering work placements in a community setting so those skills can be developed personally whilst, benefitting peer groups and local residents at the same time.
  • Supporting young people into further education, vocational training, and employment.

It was great to see the young people so involved with the Programme, and we cannot wait to see the growth and development!
