You Move Programme

The Wayz have been able to offer a ‘Your Move Programme' to our young people 14-17yrs. Through Get Berkshire Active funding, The Wayz were able to support young people in learning about Emotional Intelligence and it’s ability to support them in becoming ‘Work Ready’. Delivered over 9 weeks through Zoom sessions, by Lee from Mobile Team Challenge, a company using experiential learning and appreciative inquiry, young people will develop their ability to recognise, understand and handle their own emotions and others emotions too. So far young people have learnt about self-awareness, communication, and taking personal responsibility for their leadership performance.

It has been amazing to see the continued engagement from the young people and seeing them explore and challenge themselves and each other. At a time when next steps for young people are sometimes overlooked this is a creative support and development tool for the now and the future. A hugely interactive session each week and something I would recommend to other projects working with young people.  Thanks to Get Berkshire Active and Mobile Team challenge for the opportunity.

Get Berkshire Active are always looking for additional cohorts too so if have a group of young people aged 16-25 that are suitable for this training, or you would like to find out more, please contact Chelsea Piggott at Chelsea.piggott@getberkshireactive.org
