The news of the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh has inspired many memories and reminiscences from those who have taken part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award down the years and one of the most notable features is the longevity of the programme and its global reach.
Action4Youth delivered two fun days of activity sessions for 90 children from High Wycombe aged 4- 11 years as part of the Holiday Activities and Food Programme from Buckinghamshire Council. The programme was set at YouthSpace, in Green Street and the activities were for children who are eligible for free school meals.
Schools have gone back and we are now inching our way forward, with fingers crossed, to the easing of further restrictions. We know of the problems for young people which have been the consequence of the pandemic; the anxiety, fear, disruption to normal life, concern about exams, jobs and the future, withdrawal, loneliness, isolation and sadly, for many, bereavement.
There are signs of spring and hope in the blooming of snowdrops and daffodils and in the rapidly growing number of those vaccinated. After a difficult stop-start year it will likely be some months before we really can feel that the world is opening up again but here at Action4Youth we are looking ahead with energy and optimism.
Action4Youth has been delivering the National Citizen Service programme to 15-17 year olds in Bucks since its inception.
The good news is that from this summer we will be delivering the programme in Milton Keynes and Slough as well as Bucks.
We need the whole community to embrace initiatives for a better future which means individuals and companies offering to volunteer, support or partner with us. Together, we can make a difference.
