What are we doing currently?
On Track now delivers a programme for our participants which helps them to re-engage through positive activities. These activities are based around four key elements:
- Healthy Mind
- Skills and Learning
So far we have engaged young people through the following activities – Functional Skills (English and Maths), cooking skills , walking football, Boxing for fitness, creative writing, vision boards, mindfulness, well being walks and anxiety workshops.
In order to engage our participant’s, we also hold monthly Steering Groups which involve our young people directly and have helped to shape the sort of activities that we deliver.
