The Inspiration Programme broadens the horizons, thinking and experience of young people.
This is Jasmine’s Inspiration Programme story:
“The pillar to do with police and criminal justice system was perhaps the most helpful due to my course being public services.”
“Also being able to go to the fire station and have police officers and a judge come in and talk to you about their experiences and what their responsibilities and roles are within the public services is also incredible.”
“I was usually the quiet one, but now most weeks I’m taking charge of the group, and write things down and actually getting involved.”
“Being able to greet someone at the door of a restaurant is quite nerve racking when you’re anxious about meeting new people. But after the Inspiration Programme I’m now able to do that and be the best person I am in my job. It might just be small, but when going into my next career in the public services and then able to take all of the skills I have learned, like communication and understanding and honesty, to then take that into my career and learn from it.”
What is The Inspiration Programme?
The Inspiration Programme is an Action4Youth initiative delivered in schools and colleges across Buckinghamshire with students in year groups, from year 8 to year 13.
It fills gaps in existing provision by creating opportunities for young people, providing unique and unprecedented access to Business, Police and Criminal Justice, Health & Wellbeing, Arts & Culture, and Community & Environment
The programme supports young people to have greater belief in their own abilities by becoming more skilled problem-solvers, better team-workers and stronger communicators.
