THE CHANGING LIVES PROJECT


The Changing Lives Project is perfect for young people who don’t quite fit into mainstream school but who would thrive in an alternative educational environment.

We are currently providing 4 different courses on a weekly basis. Each course is designed to offer attendees a basic grounding and understanding in their chosen field.
The courses are all designed for beginners so it is not important for the young person to have any experience they simply have to show a desire to be in this environment.
The courses we offer are:

Changing Lives Through Dance and Perfoming Arts

These projects can be made as flexible as possible to suit an individuals’ needs, and we can adapt the sessions accordingly. We would however recommend that weekly attendance is necessary to ensure good progression and continuity of learning.

We understand that schools are already under financial pressure so we intend to keep the costs to a minimum in the hope that it will be affordable.
The minimum cost per 4-hour session would be £35.  

 

Our Vision

‘To support people to develop the skills,and the desire, to return to education and/or employment’
We passionately believe that activity and participation can have a remarkable role to play in the helping young people when more traditional methods have failed them. The  environment provides a powerful way of inspiring young people to connect, improve well-being and become productive members of society.

 

Our Mission

We work in partnership with numerous bodies and educational establishments to deliver a programme which meets the needs of disengaged young people, to change their lives through the development of key life skills, and engage them back into society. The success of the programme will be measured through the evidence of change within key skill areas. We will be led by the following core principles:

  • To change lives through activity and participation
  • To be sustainable
  • To build effective partnerships to create a world class education initiative
  • To be knowledge based
  • To nurture now for the future

Who are the target audience?

The programme will be aimed at young people in secondary school education who would be more suited to an alternative provision to mainstream school. We envisage over time the programme will be expanded to support a wider disengaged community.
