On the 15th of February, Future Foundations delivered a day of mentoring and coach training for 15 of the Rugby Portobello Trust’s youth workers.
The Rugby Portobello Trust (RPT) provide services to children, young people and families in North Kensington and beyond. The Trust operates as part of the charity P3 – People Potential Possibilities, who also do incredible work across London!
The youth workers at RPT deliver the Amplify project which works with with at-risk young people aged 14 to 19 (21 with SEND), including NEETs, pre-NEETs and those at risk of exclusion. Offering Friday late-night sessions, Amplify takes an innovative blend of creative arts and music to offer a vehicle for self-expression while giving access to new skills, qualifications, work experience and future career opportunities in a safe environment with the added opportunity to talk one-on-one with experienced youth workers, allowing young people to re-orientate their lives, perceptions and futures.
RPT provided their youth workers with training and support (using Future Foundations coach, Kath) to work with the following target groups: aged 14-19 (21 with SEND), NEET, pre-NEET, at risk of exclusion or involved in criminal behaviour.
